Subject Re: Avro RPC?
Date Wed, 22 Dec 2010 17:09:10 GMT
We encapsulated the transport in Hector a while ago, stubbing out the
avro stuff when we did. Fwiw, we have yet to receive a single request
for building it out.

Implementing a different approach like CQL is far more compelling to
me than maintaining two transports that are more or less feature
matched at this point.
