      Description

      For services that need to span more than a single table, it would be massively useful to either:

      1) Provide a new input format capable to loading data from multiple tables or
      2) Provide an example of extending/wrapping the current input format to provide such capability.

      It's not uncommon to have services that may span multiple tables and for each to require their own separate server-side iterators. Curent, in order to make this possible, the AccumuloInputFormat needs to be re-written. Adding the other table is really just a matter of running more scanners and generating the input splits for another table. It would be useful if the Accumulo core code base could provide some sort of composite or multi-table input format by default.
