Yahoo doesn't care. Even if we rebase the 0.21 branch, because of the  
timing, Yahoo will probably never deploy it. (It take months to push a  
release through QA and production testing, as I wrote the security  
release will hit the pipeline this year (code complete in february,  
first integration cluster in april, on all production clusters by  
august). Yahoo can't handle another big release until january 2011.

Personally, I'd prefer to rebase 0.21, especially after we have the  
Maven story straightened out. Generating good poms would be a huge win  
for downstream projects.

One big concern is that backwards incompatibility is a big cost.  
Especially if 0.21 (like 0.19) never gets wide deployment, I'd like to  
start a vote that we don't make any API incompatible in 0.22 relative  
to 0.20.
