sequencefiles without keys

                 Key: HADOOP-2922
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2922
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 0.16.0
            Reporter: Joydeep Sen Sarma

sequencefiles are invaluable for storing compressed/binary data. but when we use them to store
serialized records - we don't use the key part at all (just put something dummy there to satisfy
the api). i have heard of other projects using the same tactics (jaql/cascading).

so this is a request to have a modified version of sequencefiles that don't incur the space
and compute overhead of processing/storing these dummy keys.
