Out of curiosity, did you look at taking the C++ driver and wrapping it 
with SWIG or something similar for the Python, Ruby drivers?  Would the 
performance be better?  I would think with Python, you could maintain a 
separate C thread for receiving notifications from Cassandra without 
taking a lock on the GIL.

I realize that having a native Python driver is also nice for simplicity 
in deployment, but just wondering.
