046   * i.e. bypass the core call and return the Coprocessor's result instead. DOES NOT work for all
047   * Coprocessor invocations, only on a small subset of methods, mostly preXXX calls in
048   * RegionObserver. Check javadoc on the pertinent Coprocessor Observer to see if
049   * <code>bypass</code> is supported.
050   * <p>This behavior of honoring only a subset of methods is new since hbase-2.0.0.
051   * <p>Where bypass is supported what is being bypassed is all of the core code
052   * implementing the remainder of the operation. In order to understand what
053   * calling bypass() will skip, a coprocessor implementer should read and
054   * understand all of the remaining code and its nuances. Although this
055   * is good practice for coprocessor developers in general, it demands a lot.
056   * What is skipped is extremely version dependent. The core code will vary, perhaps significantly,
057   * even between point releases. We do not provide the promise of consistent behavior even between
058   * point releases for the bypass semantic. To achieve
059   * that we could not change any code between hook points. Therefore the
060   * coprocessor implementer becomes an HBase core developer in practice as soon
061   * as they rely on bypass(). Every release of HBase may break the assumption
062   * that the replacement for the bypassed code takes care of all necessary
063   * skipped concerns. Because those concerns can change at any point, such an
064   * assumption is never safe.</p>
065   * <p>As of hbase2, when bypass has been set, we will NOT call any Coprocessors follow the
066   * bypassing Coprocessor; we cut short the processing and return the bypassing Coprocessors
067   * response (this used be a separate 'complete' option that has been folded into the
068   * 'bypass' in hbase2.</p>
