override avro generic representation
Is there a way to override the avro generic representation, or perhaps an
easy way to create my own?
For example, for FIXED i would like Byte[] instead of ByteBuffer, for
STRING i would prefer String over CharArray, for arrays i would like to
have a List instead of a Collection, etc.

Right now i do a translation from the generic representation to my internal
representation and then back, which is fragile and inefficient.

Thanks! Koert
