The current matching routine in faro cannot have string-valued columns. Update it to make this possible, so we can include things like filter names in the matched catalogs.
DM-26674 Add metadata into matched catalog columns
If the current workaround is doing what we need, I'd like to de-prioritise this. Simon Krughoff Jeffrey Carlin?

Simon Krughoff Is this something we still need to do? For now we've implemented (see
DM-26674and this commit) the workaround of assigning numerical codes to filters in a dict, and other metadata such as visit and ccd can be passed as ints as well.
I'm inclined to close this as "Won't Fix", but am interested to hear your thoughts.
