> Surrogate keys is an ability to generate and use unique integers for each row in a table.
If we have that ability then in conjunction with default clause we can get surrogate keys
functionality. Consider following ddl:
> create table t1 (a string, b bigint default unique_long());
> We already have default clause wherein you can specify a function to provide values.
So, what we need is udf which can generate unique longs for each row across queries for a
table. 
> Idea is to use write_id . This is a column in metastore table TXN_COMPONENTS whose value
is determined at compile time to be used during query execution. Each query execution generates
a new write_id. So, we can seed udf with this value during compilation.
> Then we statically allocate ranges for each task from which it can draw next long. So,
lets say 64-bit write_id we divy up such that last 24 bits belong to original usage of it
that is txns. Next 16 bits are used for task_attempts and last 24 bits to generate new long
for each row. This implies we can allow 17M txns, 65K tasks and 17M rows in a task. If you
hit any of those limits we can fail the query.
> Implementation wise: serialize write_id in initialize() of udf. Then during execute()
we find out what task_attempt current task is and use it along with write_id() to get starting
long and give a new value on each invocation of execute().
> Here we are assuming write_id can be determined at compile time, which should be the
case but we need to figure out how to get handle to it.
