Subject Re: DISCUSS: Have hbase require at least hadoop 1.0.0 in hbase 0.96.0?

Thanks Deveraj and Arun. 

The security related APIs should be promoted to public/stable given their increasing adoption.

At least on the HBase side, I'll take the pain once to rework our related sources if the APIs
on their way to stability make one more change. However, it would be preferable to avoid further
need for hacks. Use of reflection can ride over an API in transition, but it can also punt
breakage due to API change to runtime, where we'd least like to see it for the first time.

Best regards,

    - Andy

compatibility on UGI/Token* interfaces (*smile*).

an issue going forward because UGI is an unstable/private API. Needs sorting out with core
