> Right now we use Text as a container for bytes rather than as a UTF8 representation of
a string. This results in some gymnastics when people wish to use byte sequences that are
not valid UTF8 (see ACCUMULO-2437).
> We should use some representation of plain bytes (ideally byte[] or ByteBuffer) and deprecate
the use of Text so we can remove it later.
