No eoc when using xget and column_finish with fewer items than the composite type #167

In pycassa 1.7.0:

print cf.column_name_class  # CompositeType(AsciiType, AsciiType)
print dict(cf.xget("xxx", column_finish=("yyy",)))


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<input>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/tmp/pycassa/", line 537, in xget
    finish = self._pack_name(column_finish)
  File "/tmp/pycassa/", line 420, in _pack_name
    return self._name_packer(value, slice_start)
  File "/tmp/pycassa/", line 122, in pack_composite
    s += ''.join((len_packer(len(packed)), packed, eoc))
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'eoc' referenced before assignment

This appears to be related to #137 because xget(), unlike get(), does not explicitly set slice_start based on column_reversed when calling _pack_name?


I think this patch is the equivalent to the change that was made to get()

@thobbs thobbs closed this in 65af172

That should fix it, thanks!
