No problem to commit to 0.98 also

> The {{HTableInterface.coprocessorService(...)}} and {{HTableInterface.batchCoprocessorService(...)}}
methods were made private in HBASE-9529, when the coprocessor APIs were seen as unstable and
> However, these methods represent a standard way for clients to use custom APIs exposed
via coprocessors.  In that sense, they are targeted at general HBase users (who may run but
not develop coprocessors), as opposed to coprocessor developers who want to extend HBase.
> The coprocessor endpoint API has also remained much more stable than the coprocessor
Observer interfaces, which tend to change along with HBase internals.  So there should not
be much difficulty in supporting these methods as part of the public API.
> I think we should drop the {{@InterfaceAudience.Private}} annotation on these methods
and support them as part of the public {{HTableInterface}}.
