Santhosh Srinivasan commented on PIG-1014:

If the user wants to count without nulls then the user should use COUNT_STAR. 
One of the philosophies of Pig has been to allow users to do exactly what they 
want. Here, we are violating that philosophy and secondly we are second 
guessing the user's intention.

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