HBase shouldn't NPE.  If bloomfilters are enabled on a table where 
before there were none, the table should just evolve gracefully adding 
the filters as it runs (Same should happen when they are disabled; any 
filters should be gradually disposed-of).

Keep asking questions if it'll maximize the time you have for hbase.

Please expand on what you mean by 'client' issues in the above.
