All write patterns should provide the same performance with Cassandra, since all writes to
disk occur sequentially. The only variance might be in the data structure used for the Memtable
(a concurrent skip list), but I expect that it is quite stable.

Maybe I should rephrase my question: is it known that certain pattern
of puts can be significantly faster than others, for same data set? I
did not mean to imply anything regarding work-arounds or such, just
that there may be features underlying storage has that would affect
higher-level performance.
