Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-7083:

> Hadoop is making things quite difficult for Hadoop application developers.

I agree that this needs to be fixed, but putting what essentially is a backdoor into the code
is not the right way to do it.

> In testing with secure Hadoop, the new requirement for native code is annoying on platforms
like OSX where the native code can be tricky to get compiled and working. We should allow
developers to disable this aspect of security by setting a special flag.
