>    Affects Versions: 0.8.0

> The ISO-SQL standard specification for CASE allows the specification to include different
types in the WHEN and ELSE blocks including this example which mixes smallint and integer
types
> select case when vsint.csint is not null then vsint.csint else 1 end from cert.vsint
vsint 
> The Apache Hive docs do not state how it deviates from the standard or any given restrictions
so unsure if this is a bug vs an enhancement. Many SQL applications mix so this seems to be
a restrictive implementation if this is by design.
> Argument type mismatch '1': The expression after ELSE should have the same type as those
after THEN: "smallint" is expected but "int" is found
