-now that contrib has gone, where do we put code that isn't going into hadoop-common.jar?

I've got two homeless projects looking to get in to Hadoop
1. the branch-1 HA canary monitor, which can also monitor arbitrary
services with an HTTP port, including declared dependencies on HDFS being
live (no timeouts reporting to vsphere or Linux HA while HDFS is offline or
in safe mode)
2. the swiftfs filesystem driver
#1 I can just stick in contrib/ in branch 1, but #2 is homeless. It's a big
patch, but is coupled to the FS contract tests (which I've been extending
in HADOOP-9258 to be more rigorous)
Where can things like this go, now that there is no contrib/?
