Folks, can we please try to keep this straight? HCatalog on its own does
not provide any support for metadata. It is a set of wrapper APIs that make
Hive's metastore and serdes accessible to Pig and MR. I think these
wrappers provide a lot of value, and I'm eager to see them merged into
Hive, but I'm dreading the marketing campaign that I suspect will follow:
"Hive now supports metadata thanks to HCatalog!".
