Yeah sounds better, in general throwing Exception is not good since you're forcing the user to capture RuntimeException, etc as well.

Daniel and I already had this discussion about getSplits() passing conf, see HCATALOG-226 where we reference jobclient source code proving that it does get passed downstream. Apart from some storageHandlers needing it HCATALOG-247, you are breaking mapreduce behavior.
Ship it!

There are some issues that need to be addressed, but can be addressed later to unblock testing.
