This is not possible because the intention is that the .proto file
will be portable between many different languages, so it only supports
fairly portable types.
I have solved this either by writing a wrapper type that provides a
"friendly" interface to the protocol buffer generated types, or by
writing some utility methods (eg. maybe
BitSetUtils.copyToByteString() / .copyFromByteString()). Either way is
a bit of extra mechanical work, but it works.
