What's your use case?
If you use multiple SerDe's, when you are writing to the table, how would you want Hive to decide which one to use?

Subject: Multiple SerDe per table name
Does hive currently support multiple SerDe s to be defined per table name? Looking through the code and documentation, it seems like it doesn't as only one could be specified through the ROW FORMAT SERDE but just wanted to be sure.
