The branch is to work on adding a feature to 0.20, not for fixing bugs.

The above is a fallacious setup.  How does a branch in 0.20 detract
from the 0.21 momentum (The append feature that we'd work on in 0.20
branch has little relation to how append works in 0.21).

Of course you can.

> I'd rather have the HBase folks put pressure on the Hadoop PMC to get 0.21 out the door than create a custom-to-be-thrown-away-in-less-than-a-year branch.  This way we *all* benefit rather than a select, but vocal group.

We're all behind 0.21.  Its the future.
