The question isn't whether there are people running Hadoop 1.x, it is
whether those people are likely to install a new version of Hive running on
their old Hadoop cluster. As a point of reference, CDH 4 shipped Hadoop 2.0
and Hive 0.10 and HDP 2.0 shipped Hadoop 2.0 and Hive 0.12.

Are you interested in managing a Hadoop 1.x compatible version of Hive?
Maybe we should call the new release Hive 2.0 and enable you to maintain
the Hive 1.x branch with backwards compatibility with Hadoop 1.x. That
would enable the rest of the Hive community to move forward and take
advantage of the powerful new features in Hadoop 2.x.
