Sure, I can take a look later this week if it can wait.

> I wrote a standalone benchmark of the MapOutputBuffer and found that it did a lot of
allocations during the merge phase. After looking at an allocation profile, I found that IFile.Reader.nextRawValue()
would always allocate a new byte array for every value, so the allocation rate goes way up
during the merge phase of the mapper. I imagine this also affects the reducer input, though
I didn't profile that.
