I think I can agree to this as well.  Despite my previous messages, my
bigger concern is subtler side effects from scope of the change, which has
had longer to bake in 0.92/trunk.  If the patch can be verified in enough
real workloads, then I can support it with suitable messaging in the

Ultimately I think it would be good to more directly expose a cluster
"connection" as an entry point to the client APIs.  Then client code could
share connections or not, however it chose.  The current dependence on
Configuration and hiding under HTable leaves us in an odd gray area where
it's not clear if the current behavior is expected/needs to be supported, or
just an implementation detail.  But that's a whole separate discussion that
may or may not be worth it. :)
