cassdict works really well!! behaves exactly like python dictionary.
i like it better than lazyboy as it allows loading all super columns of a column family, deleting an entire column family or column is really simple.

thanks for this library!

Just a note to inform the list of a python module for cassandra:

For better or worse Cassdict attempts to emulate a standard python dictionary as an interface to the python thrift api.

It simplifies thing as far as it goes. Inevitably there's no getting away from thrift api in the end. But I hope it can be handy in some respects.
Additionally there are a couple of mixins to make the thrift objects more manageable.

Thanks to Ian Eure @ Digg for his advices in progressing this module.
