Subject fs.local.block.size vs file.blocksize

3. If I have a single machine non-distributed instance, and point it at 
file://, do both of these control the persistent data's block size or 
just one of them or what?
4. Is there any way to run with say a 512MB blocksize for the persistent 
data and the default 64MB blocksize for the shuffled data?
