Subject Re: Class loading in Hadoop and HBase

I understand the benefits of TCCL, but I think, and I would like to hear
the "why not", that code that may run in the client side (like in the case
of Configuration and HbaseObjectWritable examples I gave) should prefer the
Class's CL because the client's application affects the TCCL.
