      Description

      We have are hitting low performance issue with memory spills.

      A reducer gets stuck in following state for tens of hours while
      thousands of small files are spilled. This is besides skewed keys issue.

      Note that size of spills become smaller as times goes. We can use this
      and try to address the issue by spilling in larger chunks.

      I tried different sub-set of data. Then made it work with all kind of tricks/hacks but would like to have this working easily to say the least:

      cogroup large_data_set by $0, small_date_set by $0

      small_date_set fits in memory.

      Actual spill example:
      8000 files
      Sorting by time (new to old) I see small spills:

      Sorting by time (old to new) I see a few large spills then quickly (in
