> The hadoop front-end script will print a deprecation warning and defer to the hdfs front-end
script for certain commands, like fsck, dfs.  If a wildcard appears as an argument then it
can be inadvertently expanded by the shell to match a local filesystem path before being sent
to the hdfs script, which can be very confusing to the end user.
> For example, the following two commands usually perform very different things, even though
they should be equivalent:
> {code}
> hadoop fs -ls /tmp/\*
> hadoop dfs -ls /tmp/\*
> {code}
> The former lists everything in the default filesystem under /tmp, while the latter expands
/tmp/\* into everything in the *local* filesystem under /tmp and passes those as arguments
to try to list in the default filesystem.
