I've release RHIPE v0.5. Things have changed much. It does away with  
Rserve, instead it uses the internals of Hadoop Streaming (the hadoop  
project) to stream to a dedicated R code executor (a program with R  
embedded). It uses rprotobuffer to serialize expressions (reduces size  
of data transfer).
The syntax of expressions have changed, overall it is more flexible.

EC2 AMI for 32 bit machine types is also available.
