>          Components: io
>    Affects Versions: 0.21.0

> o.a.h.io.MapWritable implements the java.util.Map interface, however it does not define
an implementation of the equals() or hashCode() methods; instead the default implementations
in java.lang.Object are used.
> This violates the contract of the Map interface which defines different behaviour for
equals() and hashCode() than Object does. More information here: http://download.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/util/Map.html#equals(java.lang.Object)
> The practical consequence is that MapWritables containing equal entries cannot be compared
properly. We were bitten by this when trying to write an MRUnit test for a Mapper that outputs
MapWritables; the MRUnit driver cannot test the equality of the expected and actual MapWritable
