Note: src/java/org/apache/cassandra/utils/vint/VIntCoding.java makes reference of borrowing ideas from Google Protocol Buffers.
I'm not sure if this is code, concepts or a reference to the concepts in the documentation for an understanding of the idea. I've included it as its a compatible licenses to be on the safe side.
