I didn't want to talk about it before it's usable. I think I might be
working on something similar.

It seems to only use "nodetool snapshot"
I'm integrating this for a 3rd party so I don't quite know what is going
on there. But looks like the intent is pretty much the same.

myself. Saves me a cumbersome additional relation.
I was undecided about this. But this is shaping up to be the cleaner
