> To recover from a failed sqoop import via hcat using --create-hcatalog-table, there is
a manual step needed to clean up the hive table i.e. (DROP TABLE IF EXISTS <table_name>).
It would be great to have another flag --drop-and-create-hcatalog-table, which works like
--create-hcatalog-table with an addition of drop if exists before creating the table.
