> Early on, [~kszucs] and I worked on two different designs for how to 
> represent Arrow arrays in Rust, each with their pros and cons.
> Krisztian started out with a generics approach e.g. Array<T> which was great 
> until we tried to implement structs, which can contain mixed types so we 
> ended up using enum to represent arrays, which was great until I got to the 
> list types ... I don't think I can implement nested lists with this approach.
> I am reviewing this again now that I am more familiar with Arrow and also my 
> Rust skills have improved greatly since I started working on all of this.
> I will be prototyping in a separate repo, and will update this Jira once I 
> have something concrete to share, but I feel it is important to address this 
> before the first official release of the Rust version. Also, if we are going 
> to consider a refactor like this, it is better to do it now while the 
> codebase is tiny.
