> like textinputformat - looking for a concrete implementation to read binary records from
a flat file (that may be compressed).
> it's assumed that hadoop can't split such a file. so the inputformat can set splittable
to false.
> tricky aspects are:
> - how to know what class the file contains (has to be in a configuration somewhere).
> - how to determine EOF (would be nice if hadoop can determine EOF and not have the deserializer
throw an exception  (which is hard to distinguish from a exception due to corruptions?)).
this is easy for non-compressed streams - for compressed streams - DecompressorStream has
a useful looking getAvailable() call - except the class is marked package private.
