      Description

      I've recently seen couple of users who were trying to import data into hive (--hive-import) with --target-dir or --warehouse-dir set to /user/hive/warehouse. Sqoop wasn't designed to directly import data into hive warehouse directory. Instead we're importing data into temporary directory first and then by hive call "LOAD DATA" we're instructing hive to do actual load (move to /user/hive/warehouse).

      I would suggest to warn user when he is trying to import data into default hive warehouse directory.
