> Currently HBaseAdmin.modifyTable does not check whether any family is supplied or not.
I can execute this method without supplying any families and that puts the table in inconsistent
state.
> In my opinion, modifyTable should let you modifyTable without overwriting. But looks
like it doesn't do that. This can be very dangerous as you can end up overwriting a table
in production and loose data. But if we are going to keep the behavior then at least some
checks should be added to make it safer.
