You should realize that S3 provides availability over consistency.  It is quite possible that you can put a chunk of data, ask for it back, and get the previous version due to propagation delays across the replicated store.  Great for backups, not so hot for real time usage.

Wow, it actually provides "key" access to ByteArrays..  I didn't see that at first.  Very interesting..!
