> Chatting with Alex, we'd do as was done previous where we'll can data from 0.92 and then
have a test that unbundles this canned data, migrates it and then makes sure all still works.
 Migration test would include verification of idempotency; i.e. if migration fails midway,
we should be able to rerun it.
> Canned data should include a meta with splits and WALs to split (migrations usually require
clean shutdown so no WALs should be in place but just in case... And replication is reading
> We were thinking that on startup, we'd check hbase.version file.  If not updated, we'd
rewrite .META. offline before starting up.
> In offline mode -- open of the .META. regions -- we'd do a rewrite per row changing the
HRegionInfo version from VERSION=1 to VERSION=2.
> VERSION=2 is the new format HRegionInfo.
> VERSION=2 will use endrow but it will keep its current encoded  name (though it was generated
with startrow as input) so we don't have to move stuff around in filesystem.
> New HRIs subsequent to the migration will be written out as VERSION=3.  A VERSION=3 has
endrow in its name but the encoded name will be made using startrow+endrow+regionid+tablename
rather than just startrow+regionid+tablename as in VERSION=1.
