> We often recommend enabling LZO on tables, most users see big wins. LZO is roughly comparable
to BigTable LZW, and we get something like prefix compression on keys. However, LZO is GPL
licensed, so a series of install steps are required: http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/UsingLzoCompression
. It's easy to miss a step or get it wrong. If so, all writes on a table (re)configured to
use LZO will fail. 
> Hadoop, well, Java, has native support for gzip compression but it is too slow generally;
is a good option however for archival tables. 
> This issue is about considering bundling or creating a comparable alternate to LZO which
is ASF 2.0 license compatible.
