no, just building downstream things. Caught a failure of spark to build against trunk too,
but that's a one liner to import the no-deprecated Auth Exception

Given the size of the change, I'm now convincedt that yes, the hadoop-client split should
have been in a branch. What it offers there is the ability to choose when to merge in. As
it is, any Hadoop 2.8 release will have this feature. It's going to be visible, and that's
going to add more testing. We should expect this to cause things to surface in the release
process. We also need to consider what's going to be the policy if 2.8.0 turns out to break
something: what are we prepared to roll back?
