> Currently, if you add a field to a schema without a default, and attempt to read a record
with the new schema that was written with the old (pre-field-creation) schema, you get an
error like this:
> org.apache.avro.AvroTypeException: Found mypackage.MyRecordType, expecting mypackage.MyRecordType
> This message is accurate, but doesn't help the user recognize the real problem: there's
a required field that isn't present in the written data.  Please enhance the error message
to make it more informative.
