To survive cluster failures and get the best performance do this:

1. Create the HConnection yourself. HConnectionManager.createConnection(...). This gives you
an "unmanaged" connection, which represents a cluster. You need to remember to close it eventually.

2. Create a single ExecutorService.

3. Now, when you need to perform an operation create an HTable using the HTable(byte[]. HConnection,
ExecutorService) constructor, perform the operation, then close it and throw it away (close
is actually a noop in this case, but it should still be called). This constructor is extremely
cheap (assuming your HConnection has cached the region locations for the table already).

I added this code precisely because of the fact that a client can possibly outlive the cluster
it connects to and because creating a new HTable this way each time is actually faster than
retrieving from and returning to the HTablePool; and because lastly the caller controls things
rather than a Byzantine caching of HTable in HTablePool.
