> currently - the code does not by and large distinguish between external and internal
tables. one clear distinction though is that storage for external tables is managed outside
hive. this leads to consequences like HIVE-86 - so that hive does not mess around with tables
whose storage is managed externally. however - currently - we allow users to specify location
for internal tables - which is confusing and could lead to data being deleted in external
folders. we should not allow this.
