      Description

      The Drill distribution includes a submit_plan script in $DRILL_HOME/bin. In Drill's early days, before Drill has a SQL parser and planner, users submitted query plans directly to Drill. Since that time, the other Drill scripts have evolved to support configuration directories, memory options, and more. The old submit_plan script does not include these enhancements.

      It appears that the Drill unit tests do not exercise the script, meaning that we have no way to verify that it still works.

      Rather than invest time to "modernize" submit_plan, we propose to drop it from the distribution. The script will remain in the Git source tree for the odd case where someone needs it (and wants to enhance the script to use drill-config.sh, etc.)
