      Description

      Currently, Avro does not seem to support a DECIMAL type or equivalent.

      http://avro.apache.org/docs/1.7.5/spec.html#schema_primitive

      Adding DECIMAL support would be particularly interesting when converting types from Avro to Hive, since DECIMAL is already a supported data type in Hive (0.11.0).
