> Running HOD from the hadoop-1.1.2-bin.tar.gz distribution with python 2.6.6 on RHEL6.4
fails with the output:

> This error appears because the Hadoop "config" class is an instance of the  python ConfigParser
class with a class variable called ._dict. However, the internals of the ConfigParser class
appears to have been changed with later versions of python to have a method called ._dict()
which now conflicts with the "config" classes usage.
> This can be fixed by changing all references in contrib/hod/hodlib/Common/setup.py from
._dict to ._hod_dict, e.g.:
> sed -i 's/\._dict/._hod_dict/' contrib/hod/hodlib/Common/setup.py
> I tested this change by repeating the hod "list" command successfully.
