That sounds like a good approach.  I look forward to seeing the patch.

That's already been done, as of HADOOP-928.  FileSystem implementations 
now opt to use ChecksumFileSystem.  The buffer size defaults to 
io.buffer.size, but applications may pass an explicit buffer size to the 
FileSystem.  The FileSystem implementation is free to ignore that hint.
