In my case I'll be doing a document based index store (like the wikisearch example), but my
documents may be as large as several GB.  I just wanted to pick the collective brain of the
group to see if I'm walking into a major headache.  If it's never been tried before, then
I'll give it a shot and report back.

Are these RFiles as a whole? I know at some point HBase needed to have entire rows fit into
memory; Accumulo does not have this restriction.

Alright, this one's a quick question.  I've been told that HBase does not perform well if
large (> 100MB) files are stored in it).  Does Accumulo have similar trouble?  If so, can
it be overcome by storing the large files in their own locality group?
