I was looking at the IndexedTableAdmin class over at github.  The private 
method reIndexTable gets called at the end of addIndex method, but I would 
prefer to remove that call and then let a Mapper Job write the index 

I might have been wrong about not having enough control over the index row 
key construction since I didn't look closely.  

In any case I've been trying two strategies for the index table:  One is to 
write a column for each master column's row key so that these row keys are 
"grouped" by a single row.  

The second and what I think may be faster is to have the index table's row key
be a composite of the master table's column + row key.  Then you could use a 
PrefixFilter to get specific results.
