    Since TabletServerBatchReaderIterator#lookup is synchronized, the reassignment is thread-safe
for other accesses that respect the instance's lock. This reassignment, in processFailures,
only ever occurs though a branch from a QueryTask, which doesn't do the reassignment in a
synchronized block (it does use a semaphore inside of the QueryTask, but that's separate from
the TSBI instance lock). 
    So, where I'm going with this: is it safe to do these re-assignments outside of a synchronized
block? It's implied to me that these updates can happen in different threads, since the QueryTasks
are executed via an ExecutorService.
