Olga Natkovich commented on PIG-794:
------------------------------------

Doug, if there is no buffering then the position in the inout stream can be 
used for now. However, if you are planning to do buffering in the future, it 
might be good to have an API that just gives the position so that later we 
don't need to change the code.
