> Currently, when creating an encryption zone, if the user does not specify a key name,
the NN will generate a new one with a UUID. This leads to opaque names, and there's no way
to specify further key creation attributes. Simpler and better is to make the admin first
create the key however they like (e.g. via "hadoop key") and then specify it when creating
a zone.
