Yes, these examples do seem general-purpose and not Hadoop-specific.
Unless we have Hadoop-specific plugins that Codehaus won't accept then
this seems like it might just end up as a staging area where we put
plugins until they get released somewhere else.  So it might be
interesting to start exploring just how hard it is to get a new plugin
added at Codehaus.  They make it sound pretty easy.


In the meantime or if that gets stalled then publishing them ourselves
seems reasonable.  +1
