Thanks very much to all those last month (at HBaseCon East and at the
Strata Conference) who gave feedback regarding *ColumnManager for HBase*.
By my reckoning, the greatest enthusiasm was expressed for the
Aliasing*" function (which could save a LOT of storage space in a
"narrow/tall" Column-family structure).
Given that enthusiasm, I'll now start working out the details of how to
incorporate Column Aliasing into the HBase project itself -- will soon
create a JIRA entry for this task.
