This is the way Apache projects operate.  It requires that folks listen
to criticism and potentially accept compromises if they wish to make
progress.  If folks cannot reach consensus in an area then that area
will not make progress.

I am interested in having this project primarily deliver a reliable,
efficient MapReduce kernel implementation.  That's the core
functionality that folks seek to not recreate.  The project should focus
on a minimal, low-level MapReduce API for this kernel and permit other
projects to build higher-level abstractions.
