Hi Todd,

The Lucene secondary index will support sorting fairly easily (eg, out of the box).  See: CASSANDRA-2915

Hi guys,
  Now that dynamic composite have been introduced as part of cassandra core, has any thought been given to implementing "order by" semantics to secondary indexing?  The dynamic composite allows asc/desc order sorting of each component in the composite, allowing for mixed asc/desc order in secondary indexes at the cost of additional disk space.
