      Description

      This currently doesn't work because Player depends on Position, but it should:

      $ cat position.avsc 
      {"type":"enum", "name": "Position", "namespace": "avro.examples.baseball",
          "symbols": ["P", "C", "B1", "B2", "B3", "SS", "LF", "CF", "RF", "DH"]
      }
      
      $ cat player.avsc 
      {"type":"record", "name":"Player", "namespace": "avro.examples.baseball",
        "fields": [
         {"name": "number", "type": "int"},
         {"name": "first_name", "type": "string"},
         {"name": "last_name", "type": "string"},
         {"name": "position", "type": {"type": "array", "items": "avro.examples.baseball.Position"} }
        ]
      }
      
      $ cat baseball.avdl 
      @namespace("avro.examples.baseball")
      protocol Baseball {
         import schema "position.avsc";
         import schema "player.avsc";
      }
      
      $ java -jar avro-tools-1.5.1.jar idl baseball.avdl baseball.avpr
