Adding commands that talk to HDFS for deployment in Karaf


As HDFS at its core is a filesystem, let's see how we can access that with the standard tools and the bundle we've been building up so far.

We've learned how to build a feature for Hadoop that takes care of all the various dependencies needed to talk to HDFS, and we have also jumped a little bit ahead and discussed classloading and a few tricks to get the Hadoop libraries we deployed to cooperate.
