ProgressReporter should work with both old and new MR API
Review Request #4971 - Created May 2, 2012 and updated
Update ProgressReporter to work with both old and new mapreduce API. Delay creating the base record reader so we have a StatusReporter and can use counters.
"ant clean test" passes I can run pig+hcatalog queries using Elephant-Bird deprecated API wrappers, which is why this issue originally came up.
