> This JIRA discusses issues relating to the configuration of Pig.
> Uses cases:
>  
> 1. I want to configure Pig programatically from Java
>  Motivation: pig can be embedded from another Java program, and configuration should
be accessible to be set by the client code
> 2. I want to configure Pig from the command line
> 3. I want to configure Pig from the Pig shell (Grunt)
> 4. I want Pig to remember my configuration for every Pig session
>  Motivation: to save me typing in some configuration stuff every time.
> 5. I want Pig to remember my configuration for this script.
>  Motivation: I must use a common configuration for 50% of my Pig scripts - can I share
this configuration between scripts.
> Current Status: 
>  * Pig uses System properties for some configuration
>  * A configuration properties object in PigContext is not used.
>  * pigrc can contain properties
>  * Configuration properties can not be set from Grunt
> Proposed solutions to use cases:
> 1. Configuration should be set in PigContext, and accessible from client code.
> 2. System properties are copied to PigContext, or can be specified on the command line
(duplication with System properties)
> 3. Allow configuration properties to be set using the "set" command in Grunt
> 4. Pigrc can contain properties. Is this enough, or can other configuration stuff be
set, eg aliases, imports, etc.
> 5. Add an include directive to pig, to allow a shared configuration/Pig script to be
included.
> Connections to Shell scripting: 
>  * The source command in Bash allows another bash script file to be included - this allows
shared variables to be set in one file shared between a set of scripts.
>  * Aliases can be set, according to user preferences, etc.
>  * All this can be done in your .bashrc file
> Issues: 
>  * What happens when you change a property after the property has been read?
>  * Can Grunt read a pigrc containing various statements etc before the PigServer is completely
configured?
