[Python] Enable calling object in Table.to_pandas to "self-destruct" for improved memory use

    XMLWordPrintableJSON

    Details

      Description

      One issue with using Table.to_pandas is that it results in a memory doubling (at least, more if there are a lot of Python objects created). It would be useful if there was an option to destroy the arrow::Column references once they've been transferred into the target data frame. This would render the pyarrow.Table object useless afterward
