or as I haven't really looked at mlai's code thoroughly yet, might be missing something obvious.

A key point to understand in the HTable.exec() calls is that List<Row> and RowRange
arguments are _only_ used to locate the regions against which we'll invoke the CoprocessorProtocol
method.  Since coprocessors run in place per-region, we need to somehow indicate the region/coprocessor
instances where the method should be invoked.

Note that the List<Row> or RowRange that were passed to HTable.exec() are _not_ made
directly available to the CoprocessorProtocol method invoked, and couldn't easily be passed
without a different approach to the framework.

Of course, if the CoprocessorProtocol method needs a certain row restriction to operate, you
could just make it a parameter to the method -- sum(RowRange) for example.  But that is up
to the CoprocessorProtocol implementor.

But I think this raises a good question: should the HTable interface use rows to identify
the regions (the current methods)
   exec(Class protocol, List<Row> rows, Call method)
   exec(Class protocol, RowRange range, Call method)

or would it be better to identify the regions directly using region name, or HRegionInfo,
   exec(Class protocol, List<byte[]> regionNames, Call method)

Anyone have strong opinions here?  My thought was that using rows was a bit more consistent
with other client calls, but maybe it raises the wrong expectations.  For the moment I'll
re-examine the javadoc to see if I can make this clearer, but I'd appreciate other thoughts.

 Ultimately I would like to use this to allow secure RPC to be enabled through configuration,
while not blocking normal (current) RPC operation on non-secure Hadoop versions.
