> Files compressed with the gzip codec are not splittable due to the nature of the codec.
> This limits the options you have scaling out when reading large gzipped input files.
> Given the fact that gunzipping a 1GiB file usually takes only 2 minutes I figured that
for some use cases wasting some resources may result in a shorter job time under certain conditions.
> So reading the entire input file from the start for each split (wasting resources!!)
may lead to additional scalability.
