 Review comment:
   Yes good idea, that looks cleaner I will add the `schemaCoder` method to 
AvroUtils, it should cover all the mentioned cases. will ping you back when 
done. Thanks for the review ideas.

> Avro can infer the Schema for an Avro based PCollection by using the 
> `withBeamSchemas` method, however if the user created a PCollection with Avro 
> objects or IndexedRecord/GenericRecord, he needs to manually set the schema 
> (or coder). The idea is to expose a method in schema.AvroUtils to ease this.
