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

Thanks. I'll check if those two types can be supported as well.

> The collect_list() and collect_set() functions currently only accept scalar argument
types. It would be very useful if these functions could also accept struct argument types
for creating nested data from flat data.
> For example, suppose I wanted to create a nested customers/orders table from two flat
tables, customers and orders. Then it'd be very convenient to write something like this:
> {code}
> insert into table nested_customers_orders
> select c.*, collect_list(named_struct("oid", o.oid, "order_date": o.date...))
> from customers c inner join orders o on (c.cid = o.oid)
> group by c.cid
> {code}
> Thanks you for your consideration.
