Currently, I want to scan using the intersection of my (human) user's
authorizations and the Accumulo (application) user's authorizations. What
you've listed is the call I'm using to get the Accumulo user's
authorizations. But if my user were to have an authorization that, for some
reason, had been removed from the Accumulo user, or that was available on
one deployment or cluster but not on another, I'd have a problem unless I
performed this intersection in the application.
