How can we improve Microsoft Azure Data Lake?

Native support for F# with USQL

It would be great to see some F# support for USQL. I understand that you can already do UDFs in any .NET language (provided you inherit from the required base class or interface etc.) but having F# inline with USQL would be excellent. F#'s lightweight syntax and expression-based syntax would be a natural fit with the SQL section of USQL, and I think would provide a more seamless experience switching when between SQL and .NET code than SQL and C#.

Pushing this further one could envisage an F# / USQL type provider along the lines of the SQL Client one (http://fsprojects.github.io/FSharp.Data.SqlClient/) which could allow you to consume USQL from within F# directly.
