Wes McKinney commented on KUDU-721:

We have been recently working on this in Apache Arrow (ARROW-1588) -- it seems 
likely that our runtime representation for analytics will be 16-bytes but we 
can encode/decode to the smaller representations (e.g. Parquet, Kudu) on the 
wire. I asked [~cpcloud] to weigh in on the design doc since he's been looking 
at this, and we want to make sure that we are able to be a good partner to Kudu 
in the future

> [~mgrund] identified that without DECIMAL type, we're going to have issues 
> with a lot of the tests tables that Impala uses. Also, since we're targeting 
> some financial applications, it seems pretty crucial. This JIRA is to track 
> the work necessary to support it.
