      Description

      Currently the Avro generated Java classes expose CharSequence in their API. However, you cannot use any old CharSequence when interacting with them. In fact, you have to use the Utf8 class if you want to get consistent results. I think that Avro should work with any CharSequence if that is the API. Here is an example where this happens:

      https://github.com/spullara/avro-generated-code/blob/master/src/test/java/AnnoyingTest.java

      That prints out 'false' three times unexpectedly. If you can't get it to print 'true' three times then you should probably change it back to Utf8.
