> On the SQL Functions page currently at http://drill.apache.org/docs/sql-functions/, the
return type for string functions is specified in terms of "int", "text", and "byte array"
instead of being specified in terms of Drill SQL types (e.g., "INTEGER", "BYTE ARRAY", etc.)
> Additionally, names of SQL types should be given in all uppercase, as they are used in
the SQL standard, as they are specified to appear in INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS, and as they
appear in the JDBC equivalent of INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS.  (Another reason is that it's
not clear, for example, which occurrence of "numeric" is the adjective "numeric" and which
means the proper noun (datatype name) "NUMERIC".)
