      Work Description: mdvorsky opened a new pull request #4904: [BEAM-3874] Switched AvroIO
default codec to snappyCodec.
   Snappy is much faster than deflate, although it generally compresses worse. In many cases,
the CPU savings from Snappy are worth the worse compression ratio except for very long lived
files or files transferred across expensive networks. 
   Snappy is also the default avro codec in Spark.

> AvroIO currently uses CodecFactory.deflateCodec(6) as the default codec for writes.
> That compresses well, but is quite expensive.
> Snappy codec offers sparser, but much faster compression, and is typically a better CPU/storage
tradeoff except for very long lived files. 
> We should consider switching the default to Snappy.
