Subject Re: Parameters for RowEncodingIterator
Date Tue, 31 Mar 2015 23:35:42 GMT
Sounds like a useful addition. I just checked to see if this could
easily be done by adding another named OptionDescriber param, but it
doesn't look like RowEncodingIterator (or WholeRowIterator) implements
that. Making RowEncodingIterator implement OptionDescriber, and
passing these options that way seems like the most
backwards-compatible approach.

Or, did you have another implementation in mind?

Feel free to open a JIRA issue and corresponding PR.
