move question from old FAQ

- = Avro FAQ =
+ '''What is AVRO ?'''
+ Avro is a data serialization system.
+ Avro provides:
+  * Rich data structures.
+  * A compact, fast, binary data format.
+  * A container file, to store persistent data.
+  * Remote procedure call (RPC).
+  * Simple integration with dynamic languages.  Code generation is not required to read or
write data files nor to use or implement RPC protocols.  Code generation as an optional optimization,
only worth implementing for statically typed languages.
