Nandor Kollar commented on AVRO-2050:
-------------------------------------

I'm wondering why {{clear()}} method is in overridden. It looks like the base 
class is AbstractList, which has clear method implemented correctly, so we 
might instead implement the {{Array}} iterator's {{remove()}} method no?
