      Description

      Observing the code in HBase we learned that WAL files written/flushed to HDFS would not present the correct file size, which made using SequenceFile for WALs problematic. So we just write Writables. In a sequence.

      However, it would be nice to go back and use SequenceFile.

      It might be possible since learning how to properly close a file.
