This seems like a good tactic to me.  HFileV2 has the current KV format
hard-coded all over and trying to 'fix' this would probably take a bunch of
effort and would jeopardize current workings.

I'd think that your moving into a green field by doing an hfilev3 would
make it so your work could run independent of 0.96 timeline; i.e. it could
come in post 0.96?

What sort of changes do you foresee necessary in core to support cell
codecs?  Between rpc and hfilev3?

Thanks Ram,
