I wasn't proposing just a re-labeling.  I was proposing a new release, 
branched from 0.20 rather than trunk.  We'd introduce some changes, 
after voting on each of course.  Candidates are MAPREDUCE-1623 and 
MAPREDUCE-1650, to better clarify what's intended to be supported in 
1.0, and HDFS-200, to make append reliable.

Since we have not yet made a 0.21 release, this numbering would be 
consistent.  It also naturally permits further 1.x releases that add 
features, like security.
