    Internally we have several users that try Flink to read the files generated by Hadoop
(e.g. lz4 / gz / snappy). I think the support of Hadoop is quite important.
    I'm not sure supporting the xerial snappy format is a good idea. The two file formats
are actually incompatible -- it would be quite confusing for the users to find out that they
can't access the files using Spark / MR / Hive due to a missed configuration.
    I suggest at least we should make the Hadoop file format as the default -- or to just
get rid of the xerial version of the file format.
    Putting the dependency in provided sounds fine to me -- if we need even tighter controls
on the dependency, we can start thinking about having a separate module for it.
    What do you think?

> Snappy is an extremely performant compression format that's widely used offering fast
> This can be easily implemented by creating a SnappyInflaterInputStreamFactory and updating
the initDefaultInflateInputStreamFactories in FileInputFormat.
> Flink already includes the Snappy dependency in the project. 
> There is a minor gotcha in this. If we wish to use this with Hadoop, then we must provide
two separate implementations since Hadoop uses a different version of the snappy format than
Snappy Java (which is the xerial/snappy included in Flink).
