I was not real keen on spinning yet another dialect of SQL, but  I wanted the query
language to fit HBase.   So, for example, if you want to specify a filter for the server and
filter for the client, a standard where clause is not going to work.  Same goes with versioning
info and key ranges.    

That said, supporting the JPA QL would not be a lot of work if that is what people want to
But I cannot promise to surface all the goodness of HBase.
