      Description

      A lot of users have datasets in a directory structures similar to this in hdfs: /dataset/yyyy/MM/dd/<one or more files>
      Instead of loading these into Hive the normal way it would be useful to create an external table with the /dataset location and then one partition per yyyy/mm/dd. This would require the partition "naming to directory"-function to be made more flexible.
