> Many functions in {{hbase.util.Bytes}} silently ignore invalid arguments.
> For instance, {{Bytes.toInt(null)}} deliberately returns {{-1}}.  There are tons of cases
like that.
> * All functions that are given a null pointer should throw an NPE.
> * All functions that are given otherwise invalid arguments should throw an {{IllegalArgumentException}}.
> Anyone relying on "special return values" such as {{-1}} for {{Bytes.toInt(null)}} is
guilty of writing broken code ({{-1}} is a valid return value for {{toInt}}!).
