A nightly build is helpful for newbies who don't have the necessary skills
(or time) to build trunk themselves. For that class of people it doesn't
make any difference if the Hadoop version used is the latest -- in all
probability, they're new to Hadoop as well. Even if they have an older
version of Hadoop running in a production cluster, they would be fine with
downloading a newer version to experiment/develop with a *nightly build* of

To summarize, a nightly build off Hadoop-0.3 should be just fine :-)

PS: I'm assuming that switching to a newer version of Hadoop is easy, and
data in the DFS can be imported into the newer version, right?
