+1 - I code reviewed this internally before posting, and have also been using it for a couple
of weeks, finding it very useful. Happy to post a copy of our internal review discussion if

 The patch I'm proposing shortly will let you just type "bin/hadoop jar hadoop-hdfs-hdfswithmr-test.jar
minicluster" to start a cluster (internally, it's using Mini{MR,HDFS}Cluster) with a specified
number of daemons, etc.  A test that checks how some external process interacts with Hadoop
might start minicluster as a subprocess, run through its thing, and then simply kill the java
> I've been using just such a system for a couple of weeks, and I like it.  It's significantly
easier than developing a lot of scripts to start a pseudo-distributed cluster, and then clean
up after it.  I figure others might find it useful as well.
> I'm at a bit of a loss as to where to put it in 0.21.  hdfs-with-mr tests have all the
required libraries, so I've put it there.  I could conceivably split this into "minimr" and
"minihdfs", but it's specifically the fact that they're configured to talk to each other that
I like about having them together.  And one JVM is better than two for my test programs.
