      Description

      Impala should support nested complex data structures as described in an Avro Schema. Records with records, arrays of records etc.

      In impala 1.0-1 for a nested struct, I get something like this:
      CAUSED BY: TableLoadingException: Failed to load metadata for table 'zuul_spans_imp' due to unsupported column type 'struct<schema_id:string>' in column 'metadata'
