Subject Re: [hadoop] Counters in ColumnFamilyOutputFormat?

Avro is there because (1) a long time ago (it now seems) we thought we
were going to move the main RPC layer to Avro and (2) it simplifies
using Avro for Streaming, which also seems misguided now

Using "native" Thrift mutations makes the most sense to me now, which
would keep it similar in structure but avoid the avroToThrift copy.
