> The current hive reducer parallelism results in stride issues with key distribution.
> a JOIN generating even numbers will get strided onto only some of the reducers.
> The probability of distribution skew is controlled by the number of common factors shared
by the hashcode of the key and the number of buckets.
> Using a prime number within the reducer estimation will cut that probability down by
a significant amount.
