      Description

      This is particularly problematic because of the quoting required to examine hdfs paths with a "!" character in them. The root table ID and the metadata table ID should not use special characters.

      Some considerations:

      1. should not collide with possible user table IDs
      2. might be useful, but may not be necessary, to retain lexicographical sort order, so root table goes first, then metadata table, then other tables

      Some options:

      1. Use negative numbers: -1 for the root table, -2 for the metadata table (my personal favorite)
      2. Use a different special character: %, &, +, or . (each of which may have special considerations)
      3. Reserve a block of IDs for internal use (say, 0-10 or 0-100), and move other tables on upgrade
