> hash partitioner is using object.hashCode() for splitting keys into partitions. This
results in bad distributions because hashCode() quality is poor. 
> These hashCode() functions are sometimes written by hand (very poor quality) and sometimes
generated from by commons lang code (poor quality). Applying some transformation on top of
hashCode() provides better distribution.
