	I'd consider 0.20.203 pseudo-stable.  It has some significant regressions on non-Linux platforms
due to libhadoop.so being a dumping ground for all compiled code.  On OS X, hadoop actually
lies about things now. Nine months of testing is useless for those folks if the outcome is
another 0.20.203.

 I'm starting this thread to collect feedback and hopefully folks' endorsement for merging
in MR-279 and putting together this new release.  Feedback please?

	For .23, we desperately need to have libhadoop tell the Java code what it supports rather
than just assuming that all the functionality is present if the library loads.  I pretty much
consider this a blocking issue.
