> Thrift 0.8 has a standing issue with boolean RPCs which default to FALSE when errors
are thrown. The only operations this affects are authenticateUser, hasSsytemPermission, and
hasTablePermission. Failing closed like it does prevents any real issues, it just throws off
the security random walk test, as well as some of the normally defined behavior.
> Up until release, we'll leave it as is. Once it comes to release time, if a fixed version
of thrift isn't available, we can either change teh defined behavior (I'm not a fan) or tweak
the 3 thrift generated methods where the problem lies. But we'll cross that bridge when we
get there.
