@Tim: Yes, looks like closing this was a mistake on my part. Your latest patch looks good,
but you forgot to click the box that gives license rights to the ASF. Can you please attach
the patch again and this time click the box? Thanks.

> By tweaking the RCFile$Reader implementation to allow more efficient memory access I
was able to reduce CPU usage.  I measured the speed required to scan a gzipped RCFile, decompress
and assemble into records.  CPU time was reduced by about 7% for a full table scan,  An improvement
of about 2% was realised when a smaller subset of columns (3-5 out of tens) were selected.
