      Description

      From the mailing list:

      That would be a real nice feature though, imagine going to the shell,
      and requesting a dump of your table.

      > load into outfile/hdfs '/tmp/table_a' from table_a

      Or something similar.

      > load from outfile/hdfs – could power bulk uploader

      Further discussion suggested that for large tables, the commands should launch a MR job (assuming a JobTracker is available).
