Dmitriy V. Ryaboy commented on PIG-1014:
----------------------------------------

Santosh -- if the user wanted to do a "count without nulls in the first field" 
then she should COUNT(A.$0).  I think Pradeep's suggestion causes least 
surprise to the end user (at least, that's the behaviour I would have expected 
had I not seen this ticket). 

> Pig should convert COUNT(relation) to COUNT_STAR(relation) so that all 
> records are counted without considering nullness of the fields in the records
