Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARROW-253) Int types should only have width of 8*2^n (8, 16, 32, 64)

Micah Kornfield commented on ARROW-253:
---------------------------------------

i'm fine dropping them from v1.   [~wesmckinn] came up with the spec originally, I'm not sure
if there were other use-cases in mind here (possibly staying compatible with encodings from
parquet)?  It looks like you've opened JIRA items to hammer out these issues.  Once we have
something that we think is a good final candidate for V1 we should make sure to circle it
back with the mailing list.

> Since arrow is focused on CPU efficient operations and we want to keep the spec simple
to the minimum required we should restrict the Int type to width of 1, 2, 4 or 8 bytes
