> From Tom White:
> I;m having a problem loading data from multiple paths in Pig. What I'm trying 
> to do is to load data from a range of dates, so I would like to specify an 
> input of two globbed paths:
> x = LOAD '2008/05/{26,27,28,29,30,31},2008/06/{1,2}'
> Pig doesn't seem to like this though as it's trying to interpret it as a 
> single path. The best I can do it to use UNION:
> x1 = LOAD '2008/05/{26,27,28,29,30,31}'
> x2 = LOAD '2008/06/{1,2}'
> x = UNION x1, x2
> The downside to this is that I want to parameterize my paths, and having 
> separate script for each number of paths in the input is cumbersome.
> Is there a better way of doing this? Are there any plans to support multiple 
> paths, and/or PathFilters?
