Márton Balassi commented on SQOOP-792:
--------------------------------------

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 [~jarcec] 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.
