Date Sat, 28 Mar 2015 06:02:32 GMT
I think adding support for multi table scan over snapshots would be a nice feature to have.

MultiTableInputFormat allows us to do this on HBase proper, but it seems like this isn't yet
supported on snapshots. There's nothing in either google or JIRA discussing such a feature
