      Description

      Just as ORC allows the choice of columns to enable bloom-filters on, it would be nice to have a way to specify which columns DICTIONARY_V2 encoding should be disabled on.

      Currently, the choice of dictionary-encoding depends on the results of sampling the first row-stride within a stripe. If the user knows that a column's cardinality is bound to prevent an effective dictionary, she might choose to simply disable it on just that column, and avoid the cost of sampling in the first row-stride.
