Subject Re: google snappy

(Please don't cross-post like that, it only adds confusion. I put
everything in bcc and posted to general instead)

Their README says the following:

Snappy usually is faster than algorithms in the same class (e.g. LZO,
LZF, FastLZ, QuickLZ, etc.) while achieving comparable compression

Somebody obviously needs to publish some benchmarks, but knowing
Snappy's origin I can believe that claim.

Relevant jiras:

HADOOP-7206 Integrate Snappy compression
HBASE-3691   Add compressor support for 'snappy', google's compressor
