> The current schema parser uses Flex/Bison. Making Flex/Bison work with CMake seems difficult.
Moreover trying to parse Json directly into in-memory schema object appears hard. The code
is not friendly for extensions to implement new features such as namespace, documentation
comments etc.
> We already have a Json parser in Avro C++ codebase, but is hidden inside the JsonCodec.
Bringing it out and implementing a schema parser on top of that (similar to the Java and C#
implementations) would fix the problem. The forthcoming patch does just that.
