>            Priority: Major

> From the email thread:
> 1) LB, when stored as directories, adds a lot of low-level complexity to Hive tables
that has to be accounted for in many places in the code where the files are written or modified
- from FSOP to ACID/replication/export.
> 2) While working on some FSOP code I noticed that some of that logic is broken - e.g.
the duplicate file removal from tasks, a pretty fundamental correctness feature in Hive, may
be broken. LB also doesn’t appear to be compatible with e.g. regular bucketing.
> 3) The feature hasn’t seen development activity in a while; it also doesn’t appear
to be used a lot.
> Keeping with the theme of cleaning up “legacy” code for 3.0, I was proposing we remove
> (2) also suggested that, if needed, it might be easier to implement similar functionality
by adding some flexibility to partitions (which LB directories look like anyway); that would
also keep the logic on a higher level of abstraction (split generation, partition pruning)
as opposed to many low-level places like FSOP, etc.
