It should be dead-simple to build a slick GUI on the REST layer. (@Virgil
I had planned to crank one out this week (using ExtJS) that mimicked the Squirrel/Toad look and feel. The UI would have a tree-panel of keyspaces and column families on the left. Then the main panel would be partitioned into two. The top of the main panel would would allow a user to type in CQL/Pig, etc. The bottom of the main panel would show the data contained in the column family / result set. Any other thoughts on design before I get started?
If we build this based on the JSON/REST interface, it should be pretty easy to embed in other applications.

Wish list: A decent GUI to explore data kept in Cassandra would be much valuable. It should also be extendable to
provide viewers for custom data.
+1 to that.
@jonathan - This is what google moderator is really good at. Perhaps start one and move the idea creation / voting there.
