      Description

      As many HBase users use binary row keys rather than strings to optimize memory consumption displaying an escaped string in the HBase shell isn't useful (and takes a lot of screen space)
      Allowing user to provide a row key formatter as part of the scan\get commands would allow developers to display the row key in a way thats makes sense for them.

      Example:
      scan 'stats',

      { ROWFORMATTER => MyRowFormatter.new }

      The row formatter simply gets the bytes array key and formats it to a string.
      Its an easy change tomake with simple monkey-patching of the shell commands but I would be happy to see it as part of the shell itself.
