I meant "This is a issue in both map reduce and local mode"

> null should be handled consistently in Join

> Currenlty Pig mostly follows SQL semantics for handling null. However there 
> are certain cases where pig may need to handle nulls correctly. One example 
> is the join - joins on single keys results in null keys not matching to 
> produce an output. However if the join is on >1 keys, in the key tuple, if 
> one of the values is null, it still matches with another key tuple which has 
> a null for that value. We need to decide the right semantics here.
