      Description

      See discussion in https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-1873

      When a user has a struct column, it may be more efficient to flatten the struct into multiple columns of the form struct_name.field_name for each field in the struct. Then when you call to_pandas, Python dictionaries do not have to be created, and the conversion will be much more efficient
