Subject Re: Return binary mode in ThriftServer

+1 on bringing it back.  causing all sorts of problems on my end that was not obvious without
digging in

I was having problems building spark, as well, with the --hive-thriftserver flag.  also thought
I was doing something wrong on my end.

but that's not the point. I've experienced this problem a month ago, but haven't done anything
about it, because I believed, that I'm stupid and doing something wrong. But documentation
was release recently and it contained no information about this new thing and it made me digging.

expect move to 2.0.0 to be so time consuming.
