Re: Hadoop 2.0 Support for Accumulo 1.4 Branch
For #2, from what I've read, we should definitely bump up the dependency
on 1.5.1-SNAPSHOT to 2.1.0-beta, and, given what Ted replied with, to
2.2.0-beta for that hadoop-2 profile.

I probably stated this before, but I'd much rather see more effort in
testing Accumulo 1.5.x (and 1.6.0 as that will be feature frozen soon)
against hadoop-2 (like Mike's point about HA). I'm not sure if anyone
ever did testing of Accumulo with the hadoop-2 features -- I seem to
recall that it was more testing does Accumulo run on both hadoop 1 and 2.

If we can maintain a single artifact, that would definitely be easiest
for users, but falling back to user-built artifacts or convenience
releases isn't the end of the world.

As far as commits, I'd like to see as much separation as possible, but
it's understandable if the changes overlap and don't make sense to split
