Ah. So I see, not sure why I phrased that that way. Since the default build
should still be, I'm not sure how it'd end up not being binary
compatible. I can update the ticket to clarify the language. Any need to
compile should be limited to running Hadoop 2.2.0.

Sound good?

By "binary convenience package" I mean the binary distribution tarball (or
rpms, or whatevs) that we make as a part of the release process. For users
of Hadoop, upgrading should be unchanged from how they would
normally get their Accumulo 1.4.x distribution.

ACCUMULO-1796 has some leeway about the convenience packages for people who
want Hadoop 2 support. On the extreme end, they'd have to build from source
and then run a normal upgrade process.
