well, then PERHAPS hbase isn't the right choice. What exactly do you
need from the definition of a "doc-store"? If you e.g. rely highly on ad
hoc queries or secondary indexes then perhaps hbase could lead to some

in addition to Teds link, you could also use thrift, if this is enough
control for you. Depends on your requirement.
