> I'd like to see an atomic version of the add_partitions() call.
> Whether this is to be done by config to affect add_partitions() behaviour (not my preference)
or just changing add_partitions() default behaviour (my preference, but likely to affect current
behaviour, so will need others' input) or by making a new add_partitions_atomic() call depends
on discussion.
> This looks relatively doable to implement (will need a dependent add_partition_core to
not do a ms.commit_partition() early, and to cache list of directories created to remove on
rollback, and a list of AddPartitionEvent to trigger in one shot later)
> Thoughts? This also seems like something to implement for allowing HIVE-1805.
