William Slacum created ACCUMULO-1228:
----------------------------------------

             Summary: Allow clients to disable column families and locality groups
                 Key: ACCUMULO-1228
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1228
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: client, tserver
    Affects Versions: 1.5.0
            Reporter: William Slacum
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.6.0


There's an inconsistency between what a server is capable of and what a client can tell it
to do with respect to fetching column families.

Currently, a user can tell a {{Scanner}} to fetch some set of column families. The iterators
support not only this, but also the converse where a user does not want to retrieve column
families. An iterator implementation can do this by hand, but a client cannot specifically
tell a Scanner to not return data from a set of column families. Clients should be able to
specify this option.

There also seems to be an inconsistency with how locality groups are defined and then utilized.
If I want to specify a set of column families as being part of a locality group, I have to
provide a mapping of locality group name to a list of column families. If I want to fetch
a locality group, I have to get the mapping first, rather than just set which locality group
I want to use. It'd be more convenient to tell the scanner just to fetch which locality groups
I want, and have the server know which column families that means.
