	I'm not complaining. I'm trying to understand how the "social priority" actually works in
practice with the toolset put in place.  If Hadoop (or HBase or any number of other large
projects currently sharing space on the 'Hadoop' nodes) opens the firehose and starts running
jobs on the general Ubuntu nodes,  build times for the rest of the ASF will absolutely tank
when these large projects get busy (especially around release time). People are very likely
to be extremely unhappy when they see one of our 8-10 hour monsters making their one hour
jobs take several hours (and maybe even mysteriously fail!). These jobs are rarely kicked
off manually, so we're very dependent upon how Jenkins is enforcing queuing.  If we as a community
don't care that other projects are getting crushed under the weight of an elephant ;), then
so be it.
