> Hive's default authorization is not real security, as it does not secure a number of
features and anyone can grant access to any object to any user.  We should switch the default
to SQLStandardAuth, which provides real authentication.
> As this is a backwards incompatible change this was hard to do previously, but 2.0 gives
us a place to do this type of change.
> By default authorization will still be off, as there are a few other things to set when
turning on authorization (such as the list of admin users).
