> Detect number of shards for file sink in Flink Streaming Runner

> [~reuvenlax] mentioned that this is done for the Dataflow Runner and the 
> default behaviour on Flink can be somewhat surprising for users.
> ML entry: https://www.mail-archive.com/dev@beam.apache.org/msg02665.html:
> This is how the file sink has always worked in Beam. If no sharding is 
> specified, then this means runner-determined sharding, and by default that is 
> one file per bundle. If Flink has small bundles, then I suggest using the 
> withNumShards method to explicitly pick the number of output shards.
> The Flink runner can detect that runner-determined sharding has been chosen, 
> and override it with a specific number of shards. For example, the Dataflow 
> streaming runner (which as you mentioned also has small bundles) detects this 
> case and sets the number of out files shards based on the number of workers 
> in the worker pool 
> [Here|https://github.com/apache/beam/blob/9e6530adb00669b7cf0f01cb8b128be0a21fd721/runners/google-cloud-dataflow-java/src/main/java/org/apache/beam/runners/dataflow/DataflowRunner.java#L354]
>  is the code that does this; it should be quite simple to do something 
> similar for Flink, and then there will be no need for users to explicitly 
> call withNumShards themselves.
