> Sometimes Hive tables contain tabs and/or other characters that could easily be misinterpreted
by a transformer as a delimiter. This can break many TRANSFORM queries.
> The solution is to have a ROW FORMAT semantics that can be attached to an individual
TRANSFORM instance. It would have the same semantics as table creation, but during serialization
it would ensure that any formal delimiter characters that did not indicate an actual break
between columns would be escaped.
> At the very least, it is a bug that TRANSFORM statement deserialization does not backslash
out literal tabs in the current implementation.
