Core outstanding question: what are our concrete HA requirements here?
The clearest operational requirement we currently have is "get this
thing stood up fast".  Hence MySQL, hence RDS.

That said, we haven't taken a Cassandra solution off the table

future, but there was enough uncertainty around it to justify removal
from the critical path to shipping.
