I like it too, but it pretty much requires that you have a complete
Cassandra tree around (you need config, scripts, and both run and
build deps), and obviously it needs to have been built.

This is how the JDBC driver was setup when it was moved out of tree
and at least a couple of people (yourself included I believe), found
it to be less-than-friendly.  If it looks like I'm trying to steer the
discussion away from this option, that's why.
