      Description

      The javadocs for ColumnVisibility have incorrect information

      1. The top level java doc refers to the ColumnVisibility(byte) constructor for details on valid expressions, even though that information move to the ColumnVisibility(String) construtor
      2. The docs incorrectly state that valid labels are [a-zA-Z0-9_-]+

      The docs should be moved to the top of the class, because they're very important. They also need to be updated to reflect the changes in ACCUMULO-739 and ACCUMULO-241.

      Finally, the section of the user manual on visibility expressions should really cover this as well. At the moment it is silent on validity of labels.
