Enis Soztutar resolved HBASE-6818.

    Resolution: Not A Problem

This is not a problem any more after the namespaces change in 0.96, which renamed .META. table
to hbase:meta.

> There are two catalog tables in HBase, ROOT and .META., whose representitives in Windows
file system are folders. However, the name of .META. table violates the naming convention
in Windows, as Windows doesn't support any file/directory whose name ending with a period
> The following are the related description from msdn.microsoft.com for naming convention
for Windows :
> Do not end a file or directory name with a space or a period. Although the underlying
file system may support such names, the Windows shell and user interface does not. However,
it is acceptable to specify a period as the first character of a name. For example, ".temp".
> Note that this does not affect hdfs, but only RawLocalFileSystem, and single-node local
hbase clusters.
