Wait for it to become extant or just wait for it to exit safe mode?

Not sure if non- existence of the name node is something we want to deal with. I worry this will cause confusion and ambiguity for first time users who point Accumulo at an empty Hadoop configuration.

Is there a way to increase the tserver effort for connection
to the master?

Aside: is there really any reason for tserver to exit? Why not
just do an exponential backoff of connection attempts until
30 seconds is hit, and then stay there infinitely?
