LoadFunc and LoadMetadata
Hi all,

For CustomLoader (a class I'm implementing) which extends LoadFunct,
implemented LoadMetadata, the "getPartitionKeys" function is supposed
to be called by "PartitionFilterOptimizer", right? I put some debug
statements in "getPartitionKeys", but this function doesn't seem like
it's ever called.

I've read through some Pig source, optimization rules can be disabled
by properties, but by default the "PartitionFilterOptimizer" should be
enabled. Also, in "PartitionFilterOptimizer", I saw checks to saw some
other checks, like the Filter operator cannot have another dependency
other than load, which is true in my case. Anyway, can someone shed
some light on this? Am I understanding this interface incorrectly?

My script is very simple (line 1 is load, line 2 is filter, and line 3
is store), so the Logical Plan should be very simple. Also, I'm
testing this in Pig local mode, not sure if that matters.

Greatly appreciate any hints!
