> We introduced the maximum number of blocks per file in HDFS-4305, but we set the default
to 1MM. In practice this limit is so high as to never be hit, whereas we know that an individual
file with 10s of thousands of blocks can cause problems. We should lower the default value,
in my opinion to 10k.
