    I notice that `mapred.MultiTableInputFormat` does not have similar logic but just uses
Reader from `InputFormatBase` which appears to assume there is only one table target:
    I am not sure if this is a bug, as it looks like, or there is some reason for this.

>             Project: Accumulo
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: client
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.1, 1.6.2
>            Reporter: Eugene Cheipesh

>              Labels: performance
>             Fix For: 1.7.0
> Currently {{AccumuloInputFormat}} produces a split for reach {{Range}} specified in the
configuration. Some table indexing schemes, for instance z-order geospacial index, produce
large number of small ranges resulting in large number of splits. This is specifically a concern
when using {{AccumuloInputFormat}} as a source for Spark RDD where each Split is mapped to
an RDD partition.
> Large number of small RDD partitions leads to poor parallism on read and high overhead
on processing. A desirable alternative is to group ranges by tablet into a single split and
use {{BatchScanner}} to produce the records. Grouping by tablets is useful because it represents
Accumulos attempt to distributed stored records and can be influance by the user through table
> The grouping functionality already exists in the internal {{TabletLocator}} class. 
> Current proposal is to modify {{AbstractInputFormat}} such that it generates either {{RangeInputSplit}}
or {{MultiRangeInputSplit}} based on a new setting in {{InputConfigurator}}.  {{AccumuloInputFormat}}
would then be able to inspect the type of the split and instantiate an appropriate reader.
> The functinality of {{TabletLocator}} should be exposed as a public API in 1.7 as it
is useful for optimizations.
