> This is a continuation of HADOOP-9660. 
> Powershell does argument parsing itself before sending them to the program. Thus using
the hbase.cmd script from the powershell environment comes with some surprises since ","s
and "="s are parsed into .NET objects, and hbase.cmd receives those arguments separated by
space. 
> An example is: 
> {code}
> hbase org.apache.hadoop.hbase.mapreduce.CopyTable --new.name=tablecopy --families=f1:f1,f2:f2,f3:f3
table1
> {code}
> will be send to the java process as 
> ["--new.name", "tablecopy", "--families", "f1:f1", "f2:f2", "f3:f3", "table1"]
> A lot of HBase commands already make use of commas and equals signs for their arguments,
it is important to create least surprise for the users between different platforms (meaning
that they should be able to copy-paste commands). 
> Although there are some workarounds (like using --% or single and double quota-ing every
argument, like '"--new.name=tablecopy"') they are not user friendly. 
> In this isssue, I propose we add a small powershell script to pre-parse the arguments
and reconstruct them to send to the hbase.cmd script.
