Yes indeed, I understand what it does and why now, but only because
I was pointed to the thrift-to-cql document. The CQL documentation
itself doesn't make it at all clear, I was originally under the
impression that the way 'COMPACT STORAGE' works was the way CQL
works by default, because that's the natural assumption until it's
explained why it doesn't work that way.

I was pointing out that either the thrift-to-cql document must be
wrong, or the CQL document must be wrong, because they contradict
each other.
