> It might be a good idea to optimize simple union queries containing map-reduce jobs in
at least one of the sub-qeuries.
> For eg:
> a query like:
> insert overwrite table T1 partition P1
> select * from 
> (
>   subq1
>     union all
>   subq2
> ) u;
> today creates 3 map-reduce jobs, one for subq1, another for subq2 and 
> the final one for the union. 
> It might be a good idea to optimize this. Instead of creating the union 
> task, it might be simpler to create a move task (or something like a move
> task), where the outputs of the two sub-queries will be moved to the final 
> directory. This can easily extend to more than 2 sub-queries in the union.
> This is only useful if there is a select * followed by filesink after the
> union. This can be independently useful, and also be used to optimize the
> skewed joins
