Sure!  I know Michael Armbrust over at Berkeley has been using Scala with
Avro; you might send him an e-mail (he's a grad student, so I'm sure you
could look him up) to see whether he developed anything in this area.

You might look into extending the existing compiler to produce scala files
in addition to java files.  It uses templates, so it's not too tricky to do
more languages.
