I agree with not bundling Hadoop for RPM/deb packages where the
package management system can take care of the dependencies.

I'm -1 on excluding the Hadoop jar from the tarball distribution,
however.  Forcing newcomers to download a Hadoop distribution in
addition to HBase, just to be able to start up a local _stand-alone_
HBase instance for testing is shooting ourselves in the foot as a
project.  We already get flak for being too complicated to run, let's
not add to it.
