> Add a Kafka TableSource which supports Avro serialized data.
> The KafkaAvroTableSource should support two modes:
> # SpecificRecord Mode: In this case the user specifies a class which was code-generated
by Avro depending on a schema. Flink treats these classes as regular POJOs. Hence, they are
also natively supported by the Table API and SQL. Classes generated by Avro contain their
Schema in a static field. The schema should be used to automatically derive field names and
types. Hence, there is no additional information required than the name of the class.
> # GenericRecord Mode: In this case the user specifies an Avro Schema. The schema is used
to deserialize the data into a GenericRecord which must be translated into possibly nested
{{Row}} based on the schema information. Again, the Avro Schema is used to automatically derive
the field names and types. This mode is less efficient than the SpecificRecord mode because
the {{GenericRecord}} needs to be converted into {{Row}}.
> This feature depends on FLINK-5280, i.e., support for nested data in {{TableSource}}.
