I totally agree. Please see the observed issues I documented at

Please see

Having consulted with the Tez Committers ( it appears that there
may be some unpopular MapReduce features which are not supported by Tez yet however I have
yet to encounter any issues along those lines.

I agree... so far the results look promising.

Yes I'm intrigued to see how things progress. Although I am still not sure 100% on what code
re-writing would be required. I am still learning more about how our MapReduce jobs would
be natively written using the Tez DAG API.
