Good points.  I suppose what I need is for the client to implement the 
part of ACID that C* does not.  So, right off the bat, can anyone tell 
me if that is even possible conceptually?  If so, please throw out some 
terms that I can wiki and some Java API's would be much appreciated as 
well.  Also, can I accomplish this or make things easier by imposing 
some restrictions, such as only allowing single-user access to the data 
for certain operations?
