> [~lhofhansl] had a suggestion (in some other jira I forgot) for doing a golden file for
the HBase API so that we can compare between releases to ensure that we are keeping source
and binary compatibility as defined in this document : https://docs.google.com/document/d/1p5pP7v2OuzSSaomK2S2v7sfKky1Hex6OqwsJO0sZTUY/edit

> I think we can generate a file, commit it to the repo, and create a unit test to check
whether any API's are broken. Adding new InterfaceAudience.Public interfaces has to modify
this file so that it becomes an explicit decision. 
> The downside is that we have to modify the file every time we add a new API, but it should
be fine since it will force us to think more before committing to supporting new interfaces
within the same major versions.
