> These classes and their roles has become convoluted. HCatTableInfo should be an HCat
abstraction of table and thus not have any job specific information and should not contain
different information depending on usage. *JobInfo classes should contain job specific information
(user provided, derived from metastore info, etc). Since *JobInfo contains such information
it should be the object which is passed to HCatInputFormat.setInput and HCatInputFormat.setOutput.
Also JobInfo should be renamed to InputJobInfo for consistency and clarity. Also there needs
to be a way to pass implementation specific configuration information down to the actual storage
