CDPD-3089: Avro, S3, and HCat do not work together properly
Importing an Avro file into S3 with HCat fails with Delegation Token not available.
Parquet columns inadvertently renamed
Column names that start with a number are renamed when you use the --as-parquetfile option to import data.
Prepend column names in Parquet tables with one or more letters or underscore characters.
Importing Parquet files might cause out-of-memory (OOM) errors
Importing multiple megabytes per row before initial-page-run check (ColumnWriter) can cause OOM. Also, rows that vary significantly by size so that the next-page-size check is based on small rows, and is set very high, followed by many large rows can also cause OOM.
