Can cassandra-all be a test dependency in hector.
If hector only depended on cassandra-thrift, and not cassandra-all, then when I have a dependency on hector, I won't transitively depend on the cassandra server side dependencies (snake-yaml, antlr, hadoop-core, etc).
I agree we need to address this. The only thing in the way is a re-packaging of the testutils stuff (fixing the location of this has been on my todo list for some time) as that is the only thing depending on cassandra-all.
fix for issue #223, cassandra-all should be a test dependency
