      Description

      For Python serialization it would be great if we had Arrow support for arbitrary precision integers, see the comment in

      https://github.com/apache/arrow/blob/de7c6715ba244e119913bfa31b8de46dbbd450bf/python/pyarrow/tests/test_serialization.py#L183

      Long integers are for example used in the uuid python module and having this would increase serialization performance for uuids and also make the code cleaner.

      I wonder if this is more generally useful too, any thoughts?
