Could also look at Google's "protocol buffers" for a native binary protocol: http://code.google.com/p/protobuf/

> If via HBASE-794 first class support for talking via Thrift directly to HMaster and HRS
is available, then pure C and C++ client libraries are possible. 
> The C client library would wrap a Thrift core. 
> The C++ client library can provide a class hierarchy quite close to o.a.h.h.client and,
ideally, identical semantics. It  should be just a wrapper around the C API, for economy.
> Internally to my employer there is a lot of resistance to HBase because many dev teams
have a strong C/C++ bias. The real issue however is really client side integration, not a
fundamental objection. (What runs server side and how it is managed is a secondary consideration.)
