Efficient positive varints
--------------------------

                 Key: AVRO-49
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-49
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: spec
            Reporter: Ismael Juma


Hi,

Avro looks like an interesting project, so I was looking at the specification. I noticed that
varints use zig-zag encoding which is a good signed representation. However, id-like values
are very common and they are often always positive. I think it would be nice to support them
as efficiently as possible too (like Protocol Buffers, for example). Would something like
this be considered at all?
