I'd like to see more cross-database support. I'm using a Cloudera implementation on Hive .9. Currently, you can create new databases, you can create tables and views in those databases, but you cannot create indexes or partitions on those tables. Likewise, commands like show partitions or show indexes will only work on table in the default database. This would probably also affect statements like Alter Table and Recover Partitions. Probably also something like Create Function, but if you want to keep all functions being created in the default database that would work. I would be more interested in full cross-database support for tables and views to start. Functions for example could all be created in default. Thank you.
