It also seems to be version dependent, I guess. Disclaimer: I don't
have a lot of exposure to Hive pairing up with different backend servers,
but I've noticed this:

Given that we've got Hive 0.9.0 in the BOM for the Bigtop 0.3.1
perhaps PostgreSQL issue is not longer there?

+1 on that -- I think it would be REALLY nice to have
our Puppet code enhanced for being able to deploy
PostgreSQL for all of the backing stores that we need
to have (Hive, Oozie, Sqoop, anything else?).
