Those running netty in a secure cluster need to know we're totally
secure.  Agreed that we need a better story in this situation.

Munging needs to go, the sooner the better; shimming may be in the
future, although that's not ideal either.  One option would be to not
support older versions aggressively, particularly with cross-version
rpc compatibility coming soon.  But I'd like to avoid a roll-your-own
approach; we need to officially support and have versions for
different Hadoops.
