Pradeep Kamath commented on PIG-1090:

bq. What's the ReadToEndLoader?
This is a internal utility LoadFunc I wrote to make it easy to read side files. 
It encapsulates the real Loader. Though this has been implemented as a 
LoadFunc, the only LoadFunc method which is truly implemented is getNext(). The 
usage pattern is to construct an instance using the constructor which would 
take a reference to the true LoadFunc (which can read the side file data) and 
then repeatedly call getNext() till null is encountered in the return value. 
The implementation of ReadToEndLoader hides the actions of getting InputSplits 
from the underlying InputFormat and then processing each split by getting the 
RecordReader and processing data in the split before moving to the next.

bq. What's the plan for BinStorage?
An input and output format has already been created and checked in in this 
branch for Binstorage
