        As I pointed out on the security mailing list, MAPREDUCE-4397 and its equivalent in 2+, does NOT "significantly" weakens Hadoop security. To avoid going to the details, this is analogous to having a plastic deposit box inside a safe. The additional "weakness" only comes in when the safe is opened. Reverting MAPREDUCE-4397 simply replace the plastic box inside the safe with the original tin box, which is also trivial to open once the safe is opened.
