> If the table under consideration is a very large file, it may lead to very large files
on the mappers. 
> The job may never complete, and the files will never be cleaned from the tmp directory.

> It would be great if the table can be placed in the distributed cache, but minimally
the following should be added:
> If the table (source) being joined leads to a very big file, it should just throw an
error.
> New configuration parameters can be added to limit the number of rows or for the size
of the table.
> The mapper should not be tried 4 times, but it should fail immediately.
> I cant think of any better way for the mapper to communicate with the client, but for
it to write in some well known
> hdfs file - the client can read the file periodically (while polling), and if sees an
error can just kill the job, but with
> appropriate error messages indicating to the client why the job died.
