      Description

      Recently I have been experimenting with avro schema that are extended with a "unit" field. By "unit" I mean expressions like "second", or "megabyte" - that is "units of measure".
       
      I received some community interest in making this concept "first class" for avro; I'm filing this JIRA to track the idea. 
       
      I delivered a short talk on my experiments at Berlin Buzzwords, which can be viewed here:

      I also wrote a short blog post that may be faster to ingest:
