      Add PURGE option to DROP TABLE to skip moving table data to the trash

      Description

      Users of our clusters are often running up against their quota limits because of Hive tables. When they drop tables, they have to then manually delete the files from HDFS using skipTrash. This is cumbersome and unnecessary. We should enable users to skipTrash directly when dropping tables.
      We should also be able to provide this functionality without polluting SQL syntax.
