I use hadoop-streaming a lot, and I really like it, but it is a kludge.
It's a great kludge, but long-term, I think we would get much better
performance and flexibility with native libraries.  I'm a Python user,
so Ruby bindings wouldn't help much, but if there were a C library, I
could make things work.

Things work now, but it would be nice if we eventually had something
