Re: Accumulo-Pig Integration
Opened PIG-3573 for the necessary work and additional discussion.

Actually, they share a common parent class, but AccumuloStorage doesn't
depend on AccumuloKVStorage. I would imagine that both have some worth
for inclusion into Pig -- if there happen to be any concerns, we can
address them later.

Thanks for your help, Daniel!
