No, it's because I'm looking at this from a platform perspective: We 
have other consumers of ProtoBuf beside Hadoop and we'd obviously like 
to minimise the versions of PB that we ship, and preferably just ship 
the latest version. The fact that PB seems to often be incompatible 
across releases is an issue as it makes upgrading and dropping older 
versions problematic.
