      Description

      Sometimes its useful to be able to make a single or string of modifications to a thrift object inline. Having set methods return a reference to itself allows for syntactic sugar like this:

      myThriftObject.set_field1(...).set_field2(...)

      getObjectFromHelperMethod().set_field2(...)
