The iterators in the ....core.iterators.user package have descriptive javadocs.  The ones
in the ....core.iterators.system package are used internally by Accumulo and aren't expected
to be used by users.  These system iterators are generally configured through constructors
instead of through an init method because the server is instantiating them directly, which
means they can't be configured by users.

I could see it being useful to have javadocs to help out other developers, though.
