that's what I thought. Right now unfortunately we can't migrate to 0.20.
I realize we lose data locality but as you said, it would still be
considerably better than now.
I had a look at the shim code, shouldn't be difficult since it would
be basically mimicking CombineFileInputFormat.
Once I add the appropriate logic to the shim, I have to set
org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.io.CombineHiveInputFormat to have hive
actually use it, right ?
