Added comment.

  JSON Rest is at its core a Jetty Http Java Servlet that gives end users complete access
to the HBase Client API through a combination of URLs, JSON, and Query Strings. It supports
Filters, Scanners, and Transactions (Transactions are available with the correct patches),
something which no other HBase client framework does at the moment. But most importantly to
my altruistic side, it is a very modular framework so that it is easy for any end user to
modify it to his/her needs. This was a fun project for me. I hope it is useful to you.
  == Why JSON? ==
  This is a question that I get asked a lot. Why JSON? Why not Thrift? Why not Protocol Buffers?
The answer I give is simple: The Internet. JSON is native to the web and native to the browser.
By using JSON as your message format, you allow for easy interoperability with any/all platforms
currently in the marketplace. Thus you maximize your potential user base through familiarity,
ease of use, and parser availability for the end user.
+ ''Michael -- would suggest that you reference the old REST interface to hbase; explain that
this implemenation supercedes and that the old is deprecated.  I can help.  Otherwise, looks
excellent.  Keep going.  St.Ack 08/09/2008 (Remove this comment when you've read it)''
