I've kept quiet so far as I am neither a committer nor a big time
contributor nor a long standing member of the HBase community. I also
have no strong opinion about contrib vs. core in general and thrift
contrib in particular.

In which way is Thrift more involved than Stargate? The code itself is
easily decoupled from the core as it uses only the public API via
interfaces. The only slightly complex thing at the moment is that
we'll keep the old API around for now so that we'll probably need a
"thrift2" package or something like that. It was decided earlier (in
one of the tickets) that the old API should stay in core for 0.21

Either way: If Stargate gets pulled in the core I think thrift should
stay too but as I said before I'm fine either way.
