RE: Task status query
Thanks Harsh!  The data-transport format is pretty easy, but how is the RPC typically set up?  Does the AM open a listen port to accept the RPC from the tasks, and then pass the port/URI to the tasks when they are spawned as command-line or environment?

Right now its MR specific (TaskUmbilicalProtocol) - YARN doesn't have any reusable items here yet, but there are easy to use RPC libs such as Avro and Thrift out there that make it easy to do such things once you define what you want in a schema/spec form.
