    I was playing around with this locally.  I added some prints and noticed the background
thread was never binning.  This was because the background thread was never started (adding
vial thread pool API will start it).  I fixed this issue by prestarting the threads, however
 I think it would be safer to add using the Executor API (because threads could idle time
out).  I was reading and found the following.
     * ThreadPoolExecutor javadocs recommend only using the queue for debugging and monitoring
     * The same thing can be accomplished using ThreadPoolExecutor.CallerRunsPolicy() and
a SynchronousQueue()
    I got .CallerRunsPolicy+SynchronousQueue working here keith-turner/accumulo@bb28195
    I made some modifications to BatchWriterFlushIT in keith-turner/accumulo@3d3c252 .  Running
that I was able to see that sometimes the background thread binned and sometimes the foreground
thread binned.

> Through code inspection, we found that the BatchWriter bins mutations inside of a synchronized
block that covers calls to addMutation. Binning potentially involves lookups of tablet metadata
and processes a fair amount of information. We will get better parallelism if we can either
unlock the lock while binning, dedicate another thread to do the binning, or use one of the
send threads to do the binning.
> This has not been verified empirically yet, so there is not yet any profiling info to
indicate the level of improvement that we should expect. Profiling and repeatable demonstration
of this performance bottleneck should be the first step on this ticket.
