Allow setting of end-of-record delimiter in PigStorage

                 Key: PIG-836
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: impl
            Reporter: George Mavromatis
             Fix For: 0.2.0

PigStorage allows overriding the default field delimiter ('\t'), but does not 
allow overriding the record delimiter ('\n').

It is a valid use case that fields contain new lines, e.g. because they are 
contents of a document/web page. It is possible for the user to create a custom 
load/store UDF to achieve that, but that is extra work on the user, many users 
will have to do it , and that udf would be the exact code duplicate of the 
PigStorage except for the delimiter.

Thus, PigStorage() should allow to configure both field and record separators.
