Extending pipes to support binary data
I'm trying to extend the pipes interface as defined in Pipes.hh to
support the read of binary input data.
I believe that would mean extending the getInputValue() method of
context to return char *, which would then be memcpy'd to appropriate
type inside the C++ pipes program.
I'm guessing the best way  to do this would be to use a custom
InputFormat on the java side that would have BytesWritable value.
Is this the correct approach?
