Patch Set 6:


I'm going to add coverage in alter_table-randomized-test but wanted to post an 
update since it's been sitting for a few days.

Yeah, but that's not a good excuse for me not to at least try and improve it. 
Ideas on how to do it better? 

My first thought is that there should be some KuduValue interface, with impls 
for each type, and then the responsibility for transforming into bytes for the 
wire is transferred to each KuduValue impl. Would be less fishy to me, and 
seems like adding new types would be easier, but it's prob a bunch of extra

Was following a pattern from elsewhere, but it is weird. Left just the fatal.

Done. Is there a goal to remove gscoped_ptr in favor of unique_ptr throughout 
the codebase?
