That sounds excellent!

I have recently been considering options for how to send updates to Solr over from HBase.
Something like what you describe would be an enormous head start. Would love to take a look.
If we can use it I would be happy to help you out with this, e.g. test, bug fix, enhance to
meet our use cases, etc.

Also, while I would appreciate the help on coprocessors that would come out of handling this
case, I presume your stuff is basically ready now and can drop in on top of an existing prod
HBase install without needing upgrade or patching.
