Connection pool close
Make pool.Close satisfy the io.Closer interface
I will also have a look at implementing Close properly in the near future.
Make life easier for new users by making the error checking on connection a bit clearer
Add support for the Valueless Columns pattern
There are times when the column names serve as values themselves. This changeset enables this pattern in compact mapping.
In preparation for making more substantive changes to Gossie's tests, I would like to do a little bit of clean-up work. This commit merely turns a few values into constants. My next commit automatically creates the test keyspace with associated column families, etc.
I have been working with Aalok Shah (pomack on github) to revamp the Go code generation for Thrift. I had been motivated by some anomalies in the generated code for Cassandra when using Gossie. Now, I would like to start backporting some of the generated fixes. This snapshot is rebuilt Cassandra 1.0.11 with thrift4go at matttproud/thrift4go@600e491.
