> There can be directories in HDFS containing unprintable characters; when doing hadoop
fs -ls, these characters are not even visible, and can only be seen for example if output
is piped thru od.
> When these are loaded via msck, they are stored in e.g. mysql as "?" (literal question
mark, findable via LIKE '%?%' in db) and show accordingly in Hive.
> However, datanucleus appears to encode it as %3F; this causes the partition to be unusable
- it cannot be dropped, and other operations like drop table get stuck (didn't investigate
in detail why; drop table got unstuck as soon as the partition was removed from metastore).
> We should probably have a 2-way option for such cases - error out on load (default),
or convert to '?'/drop such characters (and have partition that actually works, too).
> We should also check if partitions with '?' inserted explicitly work at all with datanucleus.
