> Currently, if a M/R code creates a file, it is the responsibility of the M/R code to
avoid file name collisions from different tasks.
> Hadoop should provide an API that creates unique file names based on the task type (map
or reduce) and the task ID. Similarly to how output files, part-#####, are created.
> The proposed patch adds 2 static methods to the {{FileOutputFormat}}
> {nofomat}
>   public static String getUniqueName(JobConf conf, String name);
>   public static Path getPathForCustomFile(JobConf conf, String name);
> {nofomat}
> The first one adds task type and task ID to the given name.
> The second gives a PATH to a file in the working outputdir using a file name namespaced
by the first method.
