File append questions

I thought that I read somewhere that MapR allows file appends via the NFS mount (searching isn't finding any details). So I can open a file in the NFS mount (via non-hadoop application) and add new lines to it and the changes are in available in Hadoop without the export/edit/import step in traditional HDFS. Am I correct?

If so, does this mean MapR offers true 'append' support via Hadoop? (I know all too well the Apache Hadoop issues with this in all versions). Today we're forced to merge a month's worth of files via the export/merge/import process so it would be nice to just append.
