We've successfully supported CDH4.2+ on Java 7 as well as CDH5, so I think
that code wise we're ready to move to 7. However, we can't start using Java
7-only features in the 2.x line for compatibility reasons.
Also, even if the compatibility guidelines state that we can bump our
dependencies whenever we want, practically speaking we can't in the 2.x
line without breaking existing applications. I think the best we can do is
fix this for 3.x by shading everything so we don't hit this issue again.
