Improved Array Data Type Support in Big SQL

We'd like the ability to cast strings to arrays in Big SQL. We use Big SQL for data analysis and we use the built-in JSON support heavily. We're seeing an increase of array structures embedded in the JSON data, and would like to be able to use the existing array functions with this data. However, functions like get_json_object() returns a varchar data type, but we can't cast that as an array data type and make us of the existing array functions.
