I haven't done a survey but my guess is that the HBase crew would
favor putting out the current 0.21 branch as 0.21 rather than
rebasing.  To us, hdfs and its flush, in testing, runs great.  I'm
with Konstantin and Sanjay that a release is pretty close and that a
rebasing pulling in new features means more months even allowing for
the Todd stabilizing constant.

If the project is not getting any heavy-duty Y!-fu till ~January 2011,
that sounds like hadoop 0.23 time, rather than 0.22, to me, that is if
we want to get the project back on 6-month cycles again (> 1 year
between major releases ain't healthy).
