Ah, OK, I see. That makes sense.

Looking briefly at those, it seems that the ones that are clear bugs (with
small fixes) should be put in the current MR implementation:
MAPREDUCE-2418 (maybe)

These all have patches that are pretty small, and I'd imagine would apply
pretty easily to trunk. Let me know if you'd like any help forward-porting.

The other ones, as new features/improvements, I'd agree it makes sense not
to waste effort re-implementing them for trunk MR, but rather to make sure
they're incorporated in next-gen.
