Basically you can define a variable via command-line while invoking hive with -d DT=2009-12-09
and then refer to the variable via ${DT} within the hive queries. This could be extremely
useful. I can't seem to find this feature even on trunk. Is this feature currently anywhere
in the roadmap?--
> This could be implemented in many places.
> A simple place to put this is 
> in Driver.compile or we can do string substitutions at that level, and further
downstream need not be effected. 
> There could be some benefits to doing this further downstream, parser,plan. but based
on the simple needs we may not need to overthink this.
> I will get started on implementing in compile unless someone wants to discuss this more.
