Hi Jameson,

Inline reply below for a specific point of yours ("scheduler deadlock"):

This was a problem in earlier releases, where an imbalanced or
improper config for topology levels could lead to a jarring halt in
the JobTracker's schedulers. This has been fixed in 1.1.0 already via
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1740.
