> I'd like to compute the top 10 results in each group.
> The natural way to express this in Pig would be:
> {code}
> A = load '...' using PigStorage() as (
>     date: int,
>     count: int,
>     url: chararray
> );
> B = group A by ( date );
> C = foreach B {
>     D = order A by count desc;
>     E = limit D 10;
>     generate
>         FLATTEN(E);
>     };
> dump C;
> {code}
> Yeah, I could write a UDF / PiggyBank function to take the top n results. But 
> since LIMIT already exists as a statement, it seems like it should also work 
> in the nested foreach context.
> Example workaround code.
> {code}
> C = foreach B {
>     D = order A by count desc;
>     E = util.TOP(D, 10);
>     generate
>         FLATTEN(E);
>     };
> dump C;
> {code}
