My prototype doesn't read in-memory edits. So you have to flush the table before running your
MR job. 

To read in-memory edits, I would create a special scanner in RS which reads KeyValues only
from MemTable. I'll also add observer to RS to watch region flush event.

Also, my prototype doesn't deal with region compactions so the MR job will fail if the compaction
threads delete old HFiles after minor/major compaction. I need to find a solution for this
