Subject Re: Sorted Integer -> UUID
Date Wed, 01 Dec 2010 15:56:20 GMT
Unless I misunderstand the Q, composing the column names with the row
keys and merging the resulting would yield something useful.

keyA => (1, uuid), (2, uuid), (3, uid)
keyB => (1, uuid), (2, uuid), (3, uid)

Should be transformed into:

 (1, keyA, uuid),
 (1, keyB, uuid),
 (2, keyA, uuid),
 (2, keyB, uuid),
 (3, keyA, uuid),
 (3, keyB, uuid)

map + merge to the rescue.
