Good to have new API wrappers.

I guess different APIs because people look Cassandra from different angle
with different backgrounds/ skills. At this stage, it's better that
different API find the good ideas from each other, and maybe one day, there
is one, which widely accepted. That's good for all.

Also think this looks really promising.
The fact that there are so many API wrappers now (3?) doesn't reflect
well on the native API though :)
