This will not be committed to the 0.18 branch, even if there is an
0.18.4 release. If you wanted to post an 0.18 compatible patch on the
same JIRA for reference, that's fine, but only patches to trunk will
be considered for inclusion.

If this is a shim, it should probably live in o.a.h.fs with
S3FileSystem, KosmosFileSystem, etc. rather than being added to
contrib. -C
