Possible to use a different Database in hive than default for Kite Datasets

Possible to use a different Database in hive than default for Kite Datasets

New Contributor

Is it possible to store a Kite DatasetRepository in a separate hive database than "default"?  I'm pretty sure I already know the answer but maybe I missed something in the API docs.  I get that you can separate them physically with external tables, but it seems cloodgy to overload our "default" database with files that should be logically separated. 

 

There's also a weak allusion in the javadocs that a single Dataset should typically be affiliated with a particular DatasetRepository.  That seems counterintuitive to me and I was wondering what the downsides are (if any) for storing a group of related tables in a single DatasetRepository.
