In recent versions of Storm (starting with version 1.0.0, I believe), storm.thrift uses several types before they are declared:
These types are used in the definition of HBMessageData.
This causes issues with downstream tools. For example, generating Python wrappers for the Storm Thrift types creates a module that will not import successfully.
Would it be possible to reorder this code to define the types before using them? This appears to be a simple change.
