      We should also add something about what happens when altering a family that was uncompressed to LZO or GZ, and vice versa. This just came up in the IRC channel: if I enable compression on a column family that was not previously compressed, what is needed to get the existing data in that column family compressed ?
      (snip)

      I'd suggest putting a new section under Appendix/Compression called something like "Upgrade Considerations" because this could either be compression algorithm upgrades (LZO->new version of LZO), or schema changes (as JD pointed out) where you are changing compression algorithms.

        We have section C.6 in the book now. I think we can close this.
        (Unless you think this needs a more prominent mentioning)
