> Here is the use case. A reducer might write its output to more than one file. 
> The file name will be based on the mapper key. We don't know all possible 
> keys ahead of time. In MR, MultipleOutputs provides such support. I couldn't 
> find anything readily available in Tez.
> * Set up one DataSink per file ahead of time won't work as we don't know all 
> possible keys.
> * Use MR MultipleOutputs directly from the Tez application processor. It 
> isn't clear how to pass TaskInputOutputContext to MultipleOutputs.
> * Tez MROutput can create a DataSink based on the specified outputFormat. But 
> it can't take MR MultipleOutputs.
> I end up modifying Tez MROutput with HashMap {{recordWriters}} to achieve 
> this. If this is a solved problem, can anyone explain how to do it?
