> Our current input format will always apply one range (potentially split at tablet boundaries)
per mapper. This is great for situations where you have a few larger ranges. However, there
is a potential use case for many small ranges. Aside from the problem with a large job configuration
(ACCUMULO-507), this will result in a LOT of mappers doing very little work. We should have
an expanded input format which will bundle ranges together to a single mapper, ideally while
trying to maintain locality. This will optimize jobs with a lot of ranges by reducing the
amount of mapper overhead involved. I think very little will change with the RecordReader.
The onus should still go to the end user to detect when a range change has been made (via
Key change), so it will still emit Key/Value pairs, just like the regular input format.
> This could possibly be extended to the whole row input format as well.
