    I was also thinking that multiple summaries could be kept per rfile. That could work something
like the following.
     * After 1,000 key values are written create a Tuple\<end row, summary\>
     * Add this tuple to an in memory list of the form List\<Tuble\<endrow, summary\>>
called summaryList.  
     * If summaryList exceeds 10, then merge as merge(summaryList[0],  summaryList[1]),  merge(summaryList[2],
 summaryList[3]), etc... halving the size of the list.
    So basically we could easily build more granular summary info within a file that, does
not exceed a fixed size, by leveraging the merge functionality of a summarizer.
