Subject Alternative wire protocols
Date Wed, 24 Jun 2009 20:53:18 GMT
I wanted to start a small discussion to see if there is any interest
in supporting alternative wire protocols or perhaps junking Thrift to
some degree.

Some options:
  * Use JSON over HTTP
  * Use BSON over...something (
  * Use ASN.1 over...something
  * Use Protocol Buffers over...something
  * Use Thrift, but package Cassandra-specific clients for each language

I have not thought too coherently about this but generic Thrift seems
to be a pain point for everybody.
