> Currently in the TabletServerBatchWriter, the following behavior is exhibited:
> {code}
>     // create a copy of mutation so that after this method returns the user
>     // is free to reuse the mutation object, like calling readFields... this
>     // is important for the case where a mutation is passed from map to reduce
>     // to batch writer... the map reduce code will keep passing the same mutation
>     // object into the reduce method
>     m = new Mutation(m);
>     
>     totalMemUsed += m.estimatedMemoryUsed();
>     mutations.addMutation(table, m);
>     totalAdded++;
> {code}
> This means all data is copied twice when writing. The logic for doing this is a bit dubious,
since not all clients are going to be subject to MapReduce's use of references. 
> It'd be good if we provided users with a way of signaling that there's no need to copy
the mutation payload. [~elserj] suggested creating something akin to an {{ImmutableMutation}},
which help avoid some of the fears the batchwriter attempts to defend against.
