Hive CLI wikidoc review
The Hive CLI<https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/LanguageManual+Cli>
differs slightly from the xdocs
xml file) and they both need updating, so I merged them into a single
wikidoc for review by this community.  You can find the draft here:  Revised
LanguageManual CLI<https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/Revised+LanguageManual+Cli>

After the wikidoc has been reviewed and fixed, I'll apply the same changes
to the xdocs version.  Eventually only one copy should remain, but that's a
separate issue.  I'll be revising more wikidocs as time permits; the CLI
doc is first because diverging copies can cause trouble.

Besides a simple merge, this draft includes technical changes based on
Thejas Nair's review comments as well as some editorial changes.  Please
let me know (or edit the draft) if you find any errors or want any changes.
 If more information is available, please provide it.

Q1:  In the "Hive Resources" section is the syntax for DELETE FILE | JAR |
ARCHIVE correct?

DELETE { FILE[S] | JAR[S] | ARCHIVE[S] } [<filepath1> <filepath2> ..]
Q2:  If DELETE does not require a filepath, what's the result – deleting *
all* files | jars | archives?
