>    Affects Versions: 1.4.7
>            Reporter: Daniel Voros
>            Assignee: Daniel Voros
>            Priority: Major

> Deletes are supported since SQOOP-3149, but we're only deleting the last 
> version of a column when the corresponding cell was set to NULL in the source 
> table.
> This can lead to unexpected and misleading results if the row has been 
> transferred multiple times, which can easily happen if it's being modified on 
> the source side.
> Also SQOOP-3149 is using a new Put command for every column instead of a 
> single Put per row as before. This could probably lead to a performance drop 
> for wide tables (for which HBase is otherwise usually recommended).
> [~jilani], [~anna.szonyi] could you please comment on what you think would be 
> the expected behavior here?
