    @mattyb149 thanks for the update! Sorry about the delay in getting back to 
this. All looks good now from my POV. There was a checkstyle violation (unused 
import) but I addressed that and all else looks good so merged to master.

> When trying to perform a conversion of a field between a String and a byte 
> array, various errors are reporting (depending on where the conversion is 
> taking place). Here are some examples:
> 1) CSVReader, if a column with String values is specified in the schema as 
> "bytes"
> 2) ConvertRecord, if an input field is of type String and the output field is 
> of type "bytes"
> 3) ConvertRecord, if an input field is of type "bytes" and the output field 
> is of type "String"
> Many/most/all of the record components use utility methods to convert values, 
> I believe these methods need to be updated to support conversion between 
> String and byte[] values.
