> Hadoop commands should all support some common options.  For example, it should be possible to specify the namenode, datanode, and, for that matter, any config option, in a generic way.
> This could be implemented with code like:
> public interface Tool extends Configurable {
>   void run(String[] args) throws Exception;
> }
> public class ToolBase implements Tool extends Configured {
>   public final void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
>     Configuration conf = new Configuration();
>     ... parse config options from args into conf ...
>     this.configure(conf);
>     this.run();
>   }
> }
> public MyTool extends ExcecutableBase {
>   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
>     new MyTool().main(args);
>   }
> }
> The general command line syntax could be:
> bin/hadoop [generalOptions] command [commandOptions]
> Where generalOptions are things that ToolBase handles, and only the commandOptions are passed to Tool.run().  The most important generalOption would be '-D', which would define name/value pairs that are set in the configuration.  This alone would permit folks to set the namenode, datanode, etc.
