HBASE-4460 Support running an embedded ThriftServer within a RegionServer
Review Request #2410 - Created Oct. 17, 2011 and updated
Rather than a separate process, it can be advantageous in some situations for each RegionServer to embed their own ThriftServer. This allows each embedded ThriftServer to short-circuit any queries that should be executed on the local RS and skip the extra hop. This then enables the building of fat Thrift clients that cache region locations and avoid extra hops all together.
Running this already on our hbase-92-based branch and running test site.
