The Hadoop 1/2 switch in Maven is such a pain in the neck that I vowed
to stay away from that for a while. The tricky thing is to get correct
dependencies for the project generated by the archetype (dependencies
are quite different between Hadoop 1 and 2).

Also, validating a release is a lot of work already, I'd rather not
add even more artifacts to check.

If anyone really wants this, I'd review patches to make sure it works.
But unless you're a real wizzard, I predict pain and frustration for
everyone who tries ;-)
