As a general comment -- I can't imagine that anything beats an
optimized, special purpose solution for a problem. It's not going to
be possible to replicate that on a general purpose tool like Hadoop in
volunteer time. But I bet a few tricks and optimizations, perhaps
gleaned from this, could make a lot of difference.
