      Description

      The table ID for the metadata table is problematic. The reserved character requires special escaping in shells, like bash.

      This was going to happen with ACCUMULO-1712, but would require some effort to upgrade and test the root table, walogs, and HDFS paths, so this is going to be postponed and not completed for 1.6.

      The proposed new table ID is "+m", following the conventions of the root table, whose ID is "+r". ("+" can be used much more safely across filesystems and shells).
