think we ought to use a near-current Hadoop.

I see no reason to keep .18 around by default.  People who need back
compatibility with their DFS can just use their favorite jar.  Though
in an ideal world we would avoid version dependencies in the

As to separating HICC and Chukwa.  It would certainly be possible to
