      Description

      If you INSERT OVERWRITE LOCAL DIRECTORY, you get a bunch of \N fields in your output...If you hive -e "SELECT ..." you get a bunch of "null" fields in your output. I also recall having seen NULL (in caps) before somewhere, too, but maybe I'm dreaming that.

      In any case, it would be nice if this were consistent! Preference: \N everywhere.

      Ditto, when you I O L D, your fields are ^A-delimited, but when you SELECT, they're ^V (tab)-delimited. It would be nice if this, too, were consistent. Preference: tabs everywhere.
