I was assuming one would use the existing Thrift to
distribute an sdist tarball or a setuptools egg, and then have a
Cassandra that includes the generated source package, and any
wrapper utilities the Cassandra community deems useful.

It's standard JSON, so no you don't have to generate client bindings.
To be honest, I've never used it myself (just BinaryProtocol) but
reading through
it looks like the objects it produces have a normal JSON structure,
and identify field IDs and the Thrift type of the value.
