Interesting, Ed. Funny enough, I've written some similar code back in 
the day [1], but when I ended up with a TypedScanner and realized that 
this conversion is happening solely on the client, I decided it wasn't 
worth the complexity in Accumulo's codebase.

Are you planning to re-write all of the necessary Thrift classes to 
ensure this conversion happens server-side? If you're only intending on 
client side, doesn't Guava's Function combined with Iterators#transform 
and Iterables#transform do exactly what you've outlined? Are you more 
looking for this baked for such a transformation to be baked-in?

Have you looked into Keith's Typo example? [2]
