Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-2115:
---------------------------------------

Todd, given how this functionality shapes up, it could make lot of changes to HDFS. Please
post a design document, when the mechanism is in reasonable shape.

> In practice, we find that a lot of users store text data in HDFS without using any compression
codec. Improving usability of compressible formats like Avro/RCFile helps with this, but we
could also help many users by providing an option to transparently compress data as it is
stored.
