>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-1293
>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: DataSet API
>    Affects Versions: 0.7.0-incubating
>            Reporter: Viktor Rosenfeld
>            Assignee: Fabian Hueske
>            Priority: Minor
> Currently, the output of an aggregation is of the same type as the input. This restriction
has to major drawbacks:
> 1. Every tuple field can only be used in one aggregation because the aggregations result
is stored in the field.
> 2. Aggregations having a return type that is different from the input type, e.g., count
or average, cannot be implemented.
> It would be nice to have the aggregation return any kind of tuple as a result, so the
restrictions above no longer apply.
