Subject Re: hbase and hypertable comparison

Thanks for the clear answer Andy. 
The comparison actually was conducted by hypertable dev team, so I guess it wasn't all that
fair to hbase. 
I have regained the confidence in hbase once more :)

if the goal is a fair test. Furthermore the "benchmark" code was not a community accepted
benchmark such as YCSB.
