> Problem
> 1. Inconsistencies in our user facing tools.
> - options:
>     start with single/double dash
>     words separated by dash or underscore or just joined together
>     someplace use '=' to separate value, other use space (ExportSnapshot vs HashTable)
> - Description
>   Manually formatting options and their descriptions in printUsage()
>   Inconsistant formatting, sometimes even weird.
>   Incomplete. Sometimes people forget to add new option to description
> 2. Manual parsing of options (those huge if-else loops iterating over args)
> Solution
> Use Apache CLI
> - It has various validations for option names which'll fix first set of issues.
> - using AbstractHBaseTool's print usage function will ensure consistent formatting (although
we loose the power to order the options)
> - If we enforce the method of defining options as in patch, it's highly unlikely to forget
adding description.
> - CLI parses the options for us.
> Using Apache CLI when writing new tools is straight forward, but it's not easy when porting
exiting tools since some option names are not valid as per CLI's validation.
> New method, processOldArgs(), will allow to port these tools in a backward compatible
