> I've always wondered why union all has to be in subqueries in hive.
> After looking at it, problems are:
> - Hive Parser:
>   - Union happens at the wrong place (insert ... select ... union all select ...) is
parsed as (insert select) union select.
>   - There are many rewrite rules in the parser to force any query into the a from - insert
-select form. No doubt for historical reasons.
> - Plan generation/semantic analysis assumes top level "TOK_QUERY" and not top level "TOK_UNION".
> The rewrite rules don't work when we move the "UNION ALL" recursion into the select statements.
However, it's not hard to do that in code.
