-querying salted Hbase tables

Folks -- we have a timeseries-based table we recently converted to a salted
key schema  in order to avoid region hotspotting. The rowkey format is:
salt has the form 00..13, and the timestamp is a Unix timestamp (epoch
With the version 0.10.0 HBaseStorage, what's the recommended way to LOAD a
salted schema from Pig? Initially, I thought we'd just fire off multiple
LOADs, one for each region (in our case, up to 14), but we're hitting
frequently ScannerTimeoutExceptions with this approach, even on a sample
script that does nothing but LOADs.
Is there a better way?
