will be used as the transport, this will not be a FileSystem for arbitrary HTTP urls.
> Recently, we've been talking about implementing an HDFS proxy (HADOOP-4575) which would
be a secure way to make HFTP/HSFTP available. In so doing, we may even remove HFTP/HSFTP from
being offered on the HDFS itself (that's another discussion).
> In the case of the HDFS proxy, does it make sense to do away with the artificial HFTP/HSFTP
protocols, and instead simply offer standard HTTP and HTTPS? That would allow non-HDFS-specific
clients, as well as using various standard HTTP infrastructure, such as load balancers, etc.
> NB, to the best of my knowledge, HFTP is only documented on the [distcp|http://hadoop.apache.org/core/docs/current/distcp.html]
page, and HSFTP is not documented at all?
