Thanks for contributing to the Riak ecosystem! A few notes:

Looking over your README, I see you're probably doing some unnecessary work
with respect to the .proto files [1]. We generate, package, and deploy all
of those on Maven Central [2] specifically so others can use them as you
have, while maintaining the authenticity of the code (it comes from us) and
reducing duplication (not N copies everywhere).

I don't want to bikeshed it (you obviously have your reasons), but it bears
mentioning that the new official Java client is designed so that it would
be easier to write wrapper libraries in other JVM languages, and to give
the user the option of async or sync at the API level.
