      The behavior of union and uniononschema converges after this patch:
      1. Union on relation of two different size result a null schema (union only):
      A: (a1:long, a2:long)
      B: (b1:long, b2:long, b3:long)
      A union B: null

      2. Union column of incompatible type result a bytearray type:
      A: (a1:long, a2:long)
      B: (b1:(b11:long, b12:long), b2:long)
      A union B: (a1:bytearray, a2:long)

      3. Union column of compatible type will produce a escalate the type. The priority is chararray -> double -> float -> long -> int -> bytearray:
      A: (a1:int, a2:double, a3:int)
      B: (b1:float, b2:chararray, b3:bytearray)
      A union B: (a1:float, a2:chararray, a3:int)

      4. Union different inner type result an empty complex type:
      A: (a1:(a11:long, a12:int), a2:{(a21:charray, a22:int)})
      B: (b1:(b11:int, b12:int), b2:{(b21:int, b22:int)})
      A union B: (a1:(), a2:{()})

      5. Always take the alias of first relation as the alias of unioned relation field

      Description

      We should consider using logic for merging inner schema in case of the two different types of union.

      In case of 'default union', it merges the two inner schema of bags/tuples by position if the number of fields are same and the corresponding types are compatible.

      In case of 'union onschema', it considers tuple/bag with different innerschema to be incompatible types.
