There was a very unfortunate typo in my email -- I meant to say:
"I would NOT recommend Derby". The reason being is that Puppet
code is meant to handle a more of a serious type of deployment
not just a quick-and-dirty type of provisioning that is useful during
the edit-compile-debug cycle.

The biggest issue with how Hive uses derby is that there's a sort
of a race condition -- whoever runs Hive in that configuration first
ends up owning the actual Unix files for the Derby state.
