Guess I won't be a big resource for you then, the only thing that I did was 
implementing a tar program with Jython that creates/extracts from/to HDFS.

It was painful, but not to painful, and it's not Jythons fault, it's just that 
using these clunky interfaces/classes is painful to a Python developer. Guess 
the same feeling will come from Ruby developers.

(and that's not a problem of Hadoop, I think that most Java APIs feel clunky 
to people used to more powerful languages. :-P)
