Register Statements and Param Substitution in Macros

      Register statements and parameter substitutions can be used inside macro now.


      There are some gaps in the functionality of macros that I've made a patch to address. The goal is to provide everything you'd need to make reusable algorithms libraries.

      1. You can't register udfs inside a macro
      2. Paramater substitutions aren't done inside macros
      3. Resources (including macros) should not be redundantly acquired if they are already present.

      Rohini's patch https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-3204 should address problem 3 where Pig reparses everything every time it reads a line, but there still would be a problem if two separate files import the same macro / udf file.

      To get this working, I moved methods for registering jars/udfs and param substitution from PigServer to PigContext so they can be accessed in QueryParserDriver which processes macros (QPD was already passed a PigContext reference). Is that ok?
