John Vines resolved ACCUMULO-1027.
----------------------------------

    Resolution: Invalid

I am closing this, however, should we decide to go in a different route based on the discussion
in ACCUMULO-1028, feel free to reopen so we can handle this discussion.

> Rather than add a new thrift object for each possible type of authentication token (I
saw 3 created for ACCUMULO-259), we should just make our token interface extend Writable,
and use a single thrift object to carry the user principal, token type, and binary serialized
token, in our RPC calls.
> I think the now deprecated "AuthInfo" object was acceptable for this purpose, though
with different fields and behavior than before. However, since that object was in the public
API in 1.4.x, it needs to remain as is, until it is phased out of the public API. A similar
object, (perhaps 'Authentication'), containing the user principal, token type, and binary
serialized token, should be created for this purpose instead, for the RPC calls.
