    For a mock that does real network stuff libhdfs++ uses the C++/JVM bindings over the minidfscluster
(java namenode and datanode in a single process) for its unit tests.  That seems like a very
large dependency to bring into this project.  It'd be possible to write a mock that goes over
TCP in C/C++, I can think of 2 ways:
    1) Capture network traffic of a read with tcpdump/wireshark for a given request and send
the response back.  This would be really brittle if IO request sizes changed and pretty ugly
to store a bunch of binary data.
    2) Implement at least some of the server side HDFS RPC protocol and DataTransferProtocol
to make a mock namenode and datanode.  This is possible but would be a considerable amount
of work that wouldn't be as useful for libhdfs++ since it already has the minidfscluster.

enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
