Oddly enough, rolling the web framework is something I'd like to see in a
v3. the shuffle may be off jetty, but webhdfs isn't. Moving up also lets is
reliably switch to servlet API v3

But.. I think we may be able to increment Jetty more without going to
java7, see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9650 .
