    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6532?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12828756#action_12828756

> Compared with java.lang.String, org.apache.hadoop.fs.Path is much heavier since it contains

> A major impact of decreasing Path size is allowing ls, archive, etc. on directories with
many files.
