RE: RS unresponsive after series of deletes
Good hint, Ted

By calling Delete.deleteColumn(family, qual, ts) instead of deleteColumn
w/o timestamp, the time to delete row keys is reduced by 95%.

I am going to experiment w/ limited batches of Deletes, too.

Thanks everyone for help on this one.

As I mentioned earlier, prepareDeleteTimestamps() performs one get
operation per column qualifier:
          get.addColumn(family, qual);

          List<KeyValue> result = get(get, false);
This is too costly in your case.
I think you can group some configurable number of qualifiers in each get
and perform classification on result.
This way we can reduce the number of times
is called.
