Subject Redundant (?) lengths in SequenceFile
Date Mon, 19 Jun 2006 15:42:49 GMT
Is there a reason for the key and record length included in the SequenceFile
format?

Since every Writable has to be able to read and write itself, those objects
already describe their own length (either implicitly or
explicitly). Sequence file has to resort to extra buffer copies and waste
space to get those lengths, is there any reason we cant just leave them
out?
