My thinking was that an OSGi container would allow a new version of a
coprocessor (and/or custom filter) jar to be loaded. Class conflicts
between the old jar and the new jar would no longer be a problem - you'd
never need to unload the old jar. Instead, future HBase operations that
invoke the coprocessor would cause the newly loaded jar to be used
instead of the older one. I'm not sure if this is possible or not. The
whole idea would be to prevent a rolling restart or region close/reopen.
