    Thanks for the update and the explanations @twalthr. 
    I think it would be good to leave comments about the "intentional bugs" (missing null
check and reference equality) ;-) IntelliJ pointed those out to me and others might wonder
as well.
    
    Good to merge after the comments are added.

> We already had the discussion on the mailing list some months ago about adding BigDecimal
and BigInteger as basic types.
> Especially for business or scientific applications it 
> makes sense to support the BigInteger and BigDecimal types natively. In 
> my opinion they are as important as Date or Void and should be added as 
> BasicTypes. The Table API would also benefit from it.
