Create purge locality utility

                 Key: ACCUMULO-483
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: New Feature

split evenly, then the system will have continuous ranges bundled together on tservers. This
poor distribution can impact performance depending on the operations performed. This could
be handled in the load balancer, but it could be tricky. You don't want to randomly reassign
tablets with any sort of frequency. Rather, you want to do a one-time operation in doing so.
Given the initial assignment code is a bit random (needs to be validated), this could easily
be done by offlining a table, purging all location records for it from the !METADATA table,
and bringing it back online. The balancer will assign the table randomly, at which point the
user could force a major compaction to restablish locality (as well some permanence in tablet
