>             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.
