Hello Himanshu.

Its hard to make suggestion when I've no clue as to your interests.
Can you cite some of the papers you mention?

+ Have you looked at HIVE?  It might be more pertinent making this run
better atop hbase rather than making a new XQuery-like tool for hbase.
+ Build an app that allows various kind of location queries using
geohashing+hbase combo.  There's a few fellas floating on the list who
might be able to help you out on this project.

For extra points, whatever you do, build it using hbase-2000 coprocessors.

Thanks for writing the list Himanshu.
