Subject Re: Re: can one keyspace has two groups of "initial_token"?

It has been mentioned before. In a nutshell the answer is "Do not use
ByteOrderPartitioner". It has the problem you mentioned multiple-column
families with different distributions as well as hot-spot problems.

Moving the token data to a column family level would be a large change. it
only helps the BOP/OOP, which along with supercolumns are highly NOT
suggested in all cases, but people still seem to gravitate to them.
