instanceof SomeExceptionType) but I guess these two ways are basically equivalent?  Or the
instanceof way would cover more generic stuff like seeing if something is an IOE but would
work even if the actual constructed class was something else but that extended IOE.

Right, I was thinking of using Class.isAssignableFrom but forget if that reads left-to-right
or right-to-left so I gave up. instanceof is better than equality, I'll use it.

> Since 0.20.4, an attempt to create a scanner for a nonexistant table receives a "400
Bad Request" response with no furthur information. Prior to 0.20.4 it would receive a "500
org.apache.hadoop.hbase.TableNotFoundException: <table>" response with a stack trace
in the body.
> Neither of these is ideal - the 400 fails to identify what aspect of the request was
bad, and the 500 incorrectly suggests that the error was internal. Ideally the error should
be a 400 error with information in the body identifying the nature of the problem.
