Is Thrift already in Orbit?  Another option is we just code directly
against Thrift.  There isn't a whole lot we are getting from hector.
It does give us connection pooling (which is important in Cassandra
usage), but otherwise its mostly giving us an API that looks like the
Thirft API would be if we were going raw to Cassandra over Thrift.

Given our typical "low dependency" stance in JGit, I might be inclined
to find a way to just use Thrift directly and do the rest ourselves in
our Cassandra storage code.  Similar to how we use JSch, but otherwise
do everything else ourselves.

I couldn't find Thrift in orbit [1]. 
The only reference in IPZilla is Chris' CQ 4563 for hector :-)
