Olga Natkovich commented on PIG-832:


Couple of comments and clarifications:

(1) Builtin UDFs are not reserved words. (Flatten is reserved but it is not a 
UDF) The issue we have seen is users creating UDFs that had reserved words in 
the package name and if the package name is registered as proposed in this 
JIRa, their problem will go away.
(2) I don't think we need to allow to overwrite the defaults. We are not 
planning to expand the list beyond default distribution (builtins + piggybank.) 
The plan is to hardwire this values in the code since they are not likely to 
(3) Our plan is to keep it simple and to just allow users to add packages based 
on what they use in their UDFs.
