> * when we create BufferredRandomAccessFile, we pass skipCache=true. This hurts the read
performance because we always process the index files sequentially. Simple fix would be set
it to false.
> * multiple index files of a single column family can be loaded in parallel. This buys
a lot when you have multiple super large index files.
> * we may also change how we buffer. By using BufferredRandomAccessFile, for every read,
we need bunch of checking like
>   - do we need to rebuffer?
>   - isEOF()?
>   - assertions
>   These can be simplified to some extent.  We can blindly buffer the index file by chunks
and process the buffer until a key lies across boundary of a chunk. Then we rebuffer and start
from the beginning of the partially read key. Conceptually, this is same as what BRAF does
but w/o the overhead in the read**() methods in BRAF.
