             Summary: Lexicoder decode(byte[], offset, length) into public API
                 Key: ACCUMULO-4352
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-4352
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: client
            Reporter: Dylan Hutchison


I'm interested in calling {{decodeUnchecked(byte[], off, len)}} as public API, since it removes
the need to copy a subarray out from a larger array.  Currently the method sits in the {{AbstractEncoder}}
class and is {{protected}}.

There was a discussion on ACCUULO-2817 to make decodeUnchecked public and add it to the Lexicoder
interface. The discussion involved a debate on binary compatibility and semvar.  I can't tell
what the resolution was.

One option is to create a new interface extending Lexicoder with the new method decodeUnchecked.
It would maintain binary compatibility, at the cost of adding another interface that exists
only for binary compatibility reasons. A few other options were suggested.
