> The various initTableMapperJob methods in TableMapReduceUtil take outputKeyClass and
outputValueClass parameters which need to extend WritableComparable and Writable respectively.

> Because of this, it is not convenient to use an alternative serialization like Avro.
(I wanted to set these parameters to AvroKey and AvroValue). 
> The methods in the MapReduce API to set map output key and value types do not impose
this restriction, so is there a reason to do it here?
