> The idea is to reduce disk seeks while fetching the map outputs. If we opportunistically
pin reduces with consecutive IDs (like 5, 6, 7 .. max-reduce-tasks on that node) on a node,
and have a single shuffle task, we should benefit, if for every fetch, that shuffle task fetches
all the outputs for the reduces it is shuffling for. In the case where we have 2 reduces per
node, we will decrease the #seeks in the map output files on the map nodes by 50%. Memory
usage by that shuffle task would be proportional to the number of reduces it is shuffling
for (to account for the number of ramfs instances, one per reduce). But overall it should
help. 
> Thoughts?
