> Currently parameter syntax in pig scripts is $VAR.
> This complicates scripts as parameter-literal concatenation is not supported. For example:
> An occurrence of '$OUT_tmp' in a script resolves to a parameter 'OUT_tmp', it would be
desirable this to resolve to a contactenation of $OUT&_tmp
> This can be solved by supporting parameter syntax ${VAR}, so the pig parser can identify
the end of the parameter name.
> Adding support for ${VAR} syntax in addition of $VAR would maintain backwards compatibility.
Changing to syntax ${VAR} syntax will break backwards compatibility.
