	But that's my point:  when is it no longer Apache Hadoop?  How major does a change need to
be under the line?    In the case of CDH2 and 3, in order to test it out, I actually had to
back out some of Cloudera's "improvements" in order to even test whereas I didn't under Apache.
 Is this another place where we only seem to care about APIs and say to hell with the rest
of the stack?
