    Description

      In the R package will you please export make_readable_file() ? 

      We want to interact with Feather files in our R package and are using arrow::FeatherReader$create(), which requires as input an Arrow file connection object. We thought we would follow the lead in read_feather() and use make_readable_file() like

      f <- function(file) {
        file <- make_readable_file(file)
        on.exit(file$close())
        reader <- FeatherReader$create(file)
        # do stuff ...
      }
      

      but make_readable_file is not exported by arrow, so this approach might not satisfy CRAN requirements.

      Can you export make_readable_file? Or is there some other preferred way to go from a .feather file to the required inputstream for FeatherReader$create?
