You may wish to also consider not putting it _into_ core, but making a standalone module by
itself, effectively promoting it to a 'top-level' Hbase module (still dependent on, say, a
hbase-core module). 

pretty simple to do, certainly with a Maven-based system (check out HBASE-2099 progress if
anyone is interested, it's particularly just a directory move for me).

Going towards an-ever-larger-core bundle could lead to 'fat-binary syndrome', and you may
start leading to a cycle dependency problem that will make refactoring difficult.  Having
it in contrib as a layer in someway gives a nice layer isolation.

worth considering?
