I think the basic problem here is that the generic types cannot really be
changed when executing, i.e. when you read the types of the stream from a

One thing I could suggest is to use Strings for everything and inside those
Strings use JSON or something similar to encode different types. This might
not be a very well performing solution but it is very general.
