Re: Releasing 1.5
I agree that we should be prioritizing compatibility with Apache Hadoop
in our official releases.

I believe documenting some procedures to build against every other 3rd
party version is acceptable/sufficient since we have the sources out
there too. I'm also using the word "documenting" very loosely -- a page
on our site, a README with Maven commands, or even just in an email on
this list (indexed by search engines).
