Is seeking backwards in a piped stream going to work (reliably)?

This seems like a basic map-reduce paradigm. It would be nice to have a method that would "just work(tm)" for pre sorted data like this.

Something like an iterator over the group of file handles that stores a one line buffer. Hadoop::Streaming::Reducer::Input does something like this for a single filehandle, but its terrible clumsy code (sorry 'bout that).

Hadoop::Streaming::Reducer::Input source.

    I fear seeking does not work in a piped stream at all. You have to remember tha last line so you can return to it later.
