Add support for seekable streams in Azure Data Lake Analytics.
There are several formats, such as Apache Avro, that have implementations that rely on the ability to seek a stream. ADLA currently provides a non-seekable stream and the format library, such as Apach Avro, cannot handle it.

The concept of a seekable stream feels like a violation of the mapreduce principals that ADLA follows. A better solution to me is to fix the Apache library to support non-seekable streams via buffering.
