If you are using trunk you can consider secondary indexes


You need to run regionserver.tableindexed.IndexedRegionServer
instead of standard HRegionServer and client side you'll
need to use the classes in client.tableindexed, but this will
"transparently" (more or less) support scanners that return
rows in ascending sort order on the column data of your
choice. Secondary indexes must be established at table
creation time by using IndexedTableAdmin to create the table.

You can create any number of secondary indexes on a table.

This has not been well tested so if you do use it and 
encounter a problem, please file a report.
