Is it safe to use this to generate a single SequenceFile out of a set of

FileUtil.copyMerge just copies bytes of src files into one large heap of a destination file. This will break if src files are SequenceFiles since we now have multiple headers mixed with data.
I've opened http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2501
to cover _merge_ and other useful utilities for SequenceFiles.
this seems to be the source of my damaged sequence files.
