Well, it seems a little odd to me (if anything it seems like a new TLP
associated with hadoop and generic distributed computing tools like
pig that are built on top of hadoop seems like it would make more
sense than just a pig TLP), but if that's what the people involved
want I don't see anything wrong with it.  I mean it's not like a
decision on a final home for the project has to happen now anyway.

In any event, +1 from me, this is a neat project and I'd be happy to
see it here.
