Module Advice - Cassandra / Thrift

Hi all ... looking for some advice.

I am looking to use the lau module in conjunction with a module that
talks to nosql cassandra database. A couple of questions:

Does a module exist that can talk to Apache Cassandra NoSQL db?  I am
thinking no.

Cassandra uses Apache Thrift as it's driver / service layer.  Using
Thrift you can write in C, but then you have a glib dependency, or I can
code in C++.  What do you recommend?  Adding the glib dependency or
writing an upstream implementation that talks to a C++ library that is
compatible with C?



P.S. I am planning on making this opensource ...
