------------------------------------

This is a follow on from HIVE-6469, which went only half-way in providing the required functionality

> Users of our clusters are often running up against their quota limits because of Hive
tables. When they drop tables, they have to then manually delete the files from HDFS using
skipTrash. This is cumbersome and unnecessary. We should enable users to skipTrash directly
when dropping tables.
> We should also be able to provide this functionality without polluting SQL syntax.
