---------------------------------

+1

maybe, we can file a extension later on if someone asks for a type conversion in UNION

> "Explain" shows that the plan for the 2 union-all operands have different output types
that are converged to STRING, but there is no UDFToString inserted for "0 + b.v AS v" and
as a result, SerDe was failing because it expects a String but is passed a Double.
