Calling it other than Hadoop would only confuse the situation even
more; "Trust all your data to fooFS!".  It'd also reeks of HDFS 'fork'
(HBase is not yet up for taking on such a burden).

I liked my original reading of your suggestion Chris -- even if it was
perhaps not what you intended -- where HBase would host
hadoop-0.20-append.  Thats not on?

P.S. Arun, I agree.
