unable to control parallelism of Map tasks

                 Key: PIG-539
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-539
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: impl
         Environment: local execution + hadoop execution
            Reporter: Christopher Olston

I put "PARALLEL 1" following *every* statement in my pig script, and it still 
executes maps with more than 1 parallel task. This is a major problem because 
for one of my operations I need to have a serialized (non-parallel) map.

Probably the semantics of parallelism should be as follows:
 1. group pig operators into map/reduce stages
 2. for each stage, take the minimum of the "Parallel" directives given by the 
user for statements executed as part of that stage

(We'll have to decide on a rule for statements that use the combiner, which 
execute partially on the map side and partially on the reduce side ...)
