        Hey All,

        Are there any plans to follow up on this by any chance? The TODOs are still in the code, e.g. [1].
        Importing to Hive would become much more convenient with this feature. Exchanging a quick mail with Jarek Jarcec Cecho brought up that Hive might require some transformations of the binary data into a text format (maybe base64) which was the cause of delaying this feature.
