What I'd want to suggest is that anyone who wants to move rapidly on
integration should start a github repo which doesn't directly inject itself
into mahout,
but stands separately for now, but then the maven dependency DAG rears its
ugly head:

  pig-vector depends on mahout-core

so if we *do* want to start writing cool stuff *in mahout* which depends on
we're circularly dependently self-destruct.  Now, if we had a proper
maven module (*ahem*!), which had all the stuff pig-vector needed, and
depended on this, then mahout-core (or mahout-examples) could still depend
pig-vector (or something like it, like the elephant-bird-loaders slim dep)
at some
