Virgil gets a command-line interface (virgil-cli)

Tonight I bundled the cassandra command-line interface (CLI) into virgil. Since the CLI uses the thrift-based CassandraDaemon, the main method now starts a thrift server along side the REST server.

Now, when you (or your application) issues commands through the REST interface, you can verify that they worked through the command-line interface. For more information, check out the wiki.

Specifically, if you use the curl commands in the Getting Started section. You should see the following in the command-line interface.

bone@zen:~/dev/> bin/virgil-cli -h localhost
Connected to: "Test Cluster" on localhost/9160
Welcome to the Cassandra CLI.

Type 'help;' or '?' for help.
Type 'quit;' or 'exit;' to quit.
