And this is something I'm really excited about. If only the storage system
part of Palo were contributed to the ASF, and simultaneously the Palo
community and the Impala community worked together to integrate the query
engine work of Palo into Impala, then this could provide a lot of benefit
to users, I think. My hope is that it would eliminate the toil the Palo
community is engaged in by rebasing Impala changes (as Tim noticed).
Impala, meanwhile, might benefit from some changes Palo has made, like SIMD

This could be a lot of work, but the current system seems to already
include quite a lot of inefficiency from the duplication.
