> I'd like to generalize the SequenceFileInputFormat that was introduced in HADOOP-412 so that it can be applied to any InputFormat. To do this, I propose:
> interface WritableFilter {
>    boolean accept(Writable item);
> }
> class FilterInputFormat implements InputFormat {
>   ...
> }
> FilterInputFormat would look in the JobConf for:
>    mapred.input.filter.source = the underlying input format
>    mapred.input.filter.filters = a list of class names that implement WritableFilter
> The FilterInputFormat will work like the current SequenceFilter, but use an internal RecordReader rather than the SequenceFile. This will require adding a next(key) and getCurrentValue(value) to the RecordReader interface, but that will be addressed in a different issue.
