All other functionalities except for the two mentioned in the previous comment will see splits
combined by default, if necessary.

> We frequently run in the situation where Pig needs to deal with small files in the input.
In this case a separate map is created for each file which could be very inefficient. 
> It would be greate to have an umbrella input format that can take multiple files and
use them in a single split. We would like to see this working with different data formats
if possible.
> There are already a couple of input formats doing similar thing: MultifileInputFormat
as well as CombinedInputFormat; howevere, neither works with ne Hadoop 20 API. 
> We at least want to do a feasibility study for Pig 0.8.0.
