Hello Luke, Jamie, others.

Sorry I missed this discussion; here's (as best I can) answers to a few of
the previous questions about the contributed indexing:

0. Work has been slow on hbase-trx (which includes both transaction and
indexing contrib) due to recent changes here.  I'm doing my best to dive
in/catch up.  Definitely fork it, download it, file issues, and the usual.
 Best way to ping us directly is via github or hbase-dev@troove.net - I do
try and monitor the hbase lists, but (obviously) don't catch everything.

1. The current code at hbase-trx relies on an in-progress patch to this

Which factors log splitting out of HLog, and adds instance methods (which we
need to override for the transactional log).  This is only a requirement for
the transactional aspect and indexing should work using calls to the
existing static methods in trunk, but I have not tested this approach.  If
this would be of immediate use, I could probably push a branch to github in
pretty short order; ping me directly if so.  (I'd be happy to take a patch,

2. Controlling keys: you should be able to implement IndexKeyGenerator for a
significant degree of control over, er, key generation.  The default
implementation (SimpleIndexKeyGenerator) functions as Samuru describes
here: http://search-hadoop.com/m/U1H6O1M6dpr/Secondary+indexes+in+0.89
