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

Wes McKinney commented on ARROW-253:
------------------------------------

This sounds like a reasonable plan. I'm supportive of limiting the integer support to multiples
of the standard 8 through 64-bit widths until there is more clear demand and use cases for
bit-packed types.

> 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
