While it may be critical, I still don't understand why we couldn't release without it, and
carry on the discussion. 
Putting so much emphasis and pressure on this issue is unwarranted. 

Everyone who has discussed this patch has said it isn't critical to hadoop, and It's holding
up everything else 0.22 is going to bring. 
There are now 4 separate companies who have released their own 0.20 version because of the
delay on our releasing...
Delaying this release another 2-3 months for a single patch seems a bit extreme to me.
