    Throughout all the value vector classes, this new "copyEntry" method has to explicitly
downcast from interface ValueVector to a subclass. Such cast happens for each value copied.
I' not sure how performance overhead it could possibly incur : JVM has to check the input
type, and raise ClassCastException in case of error. 
    Compared with the existing method,  I think cast only happens in doSetup(), which is called
for each new schema. 
    Also, "copyEntry" uses data.getBytes(), while copyFromSafe() uses setInt(...,   from.data.getInt()).
 I'm not sure the performance difference comes from the difference of generated code vs generic
class, or the difference of the underneath implementation.
