I'm thinking in general (beyond the next immediate release). Independent of
where mrunit goes, I think it should leave the contrib tree to facilitate
light weight releases (the dependency on Hadoop proper is a public facing
API - a pure client). I think most projects could benefit from this with the
exception of things that are tightly coupled to Hadoop releases or touch
non-public APIs.

Got it. Thanks for correcting me. I only mentioned it because someone
suggested it to me initially.

I agree that it is unfortunate that Apache doesn't yet support read-write
