And for someone who is new to HBase and Hadoop, those two paragraphs are immensely confusing.
 First it says you have to build your own Hadoop, and then it says a copy of Hadoop is bundled
with HBase.

The poor newbie is at a total loss.  Do I have to build my own copy of Hadoop or not?  Can
I download the latest 0.20.x Hadoop and just replace the hadoop-core jar with the one from
the HBase distribution?  And then all those other versions get mentioned, which just makes
things even more confusing.

I think this could be clearer.
