> Implement fuzzy row key filter to allow fetching records e.g. by this criteria: "???alex?b".
> This seems to be very useful as an alternative to select records by row keys by specifying
their part which is not prefix part. Due to fast-forwarding nature of the filter in many situations
this helps to avoid heavy full-table scans.
> This is especially effective when you have composite row key and (some of) its parts
has fixed length. E.g. with the key of format userId_actionId_time, given that userId and
actionId length is fixed, one can select user actions of specific type using fuzzy row key
by specifying mask "????_myaction". Given fast-forwarding nature of filter, this will usually
work much faster than doing whole table scan with any of the existing server-side filters.
> In many cases this can work as secondary-indexing alternative.
> Many times users implement it as a custom filter and many times they just don' know this
is possible. Let's add it to the common codebase.
