   Perhaps we should be trying for consistency with what Drill does for analogous JSON data.
 Querying this document
   ```json
   [
   	{
   		"foo": null
   	},
   	{
   		"foo": { "bar": 0 }
   	}
   ]
   ```
   gives you 
   ```
   foo      |
   ---------|
   {}       |
   {"bar":0}|
   ```
   .  The null value becomes an empty map, but things are different to my earlier comment.
 Adding an object with an int property `{"foo": 2}` returns an error, not a map with a special
key `{'__value__' : 2 }`.  Somehow Drill is able to delay its decision on the column type
until the ocurrence of the first non-null value.  Is this something that's possible with Easy
format plugins?
