*BigTable parity, not BigTop.

I was the one who brought up this idea - my thinking is that, while
HBase works pretty well for many of us, it's still not at the level of
stability where a META-munching bug is a big surprise. So IMO
"BigTable parity" means we do everything described in the BigTable
paper, and we only see cases where things break "on their own" on very
rare occasion.

We're nearly there, but the number of bug fixes related to the master
between 0.90 and 0.92 implies that we're not there yet.

Of course this is just one man's opinion - we could call a vote to
release 1.0 at any point.
