RE: question about multi-transaction queries
All of my experience doing something like this was with straight Java.

There are MultiGet and MultiPut capabilities in the Java client that will help you out significantly.

I played with Jython and HBase a couple years ago and back then the performance was horrible.  I never looked back but I have no idea if it's gotten better in the meantime.
