      Description

      The package startup message about masking base functions can be scary. We should avoid masking base functions without a compelling reason (i.e. let's do arrow_array() instead of array(), arrow_table()). The arrow versions do very different things than the base functions; plus, end users shouldn’t be dealing directly with Tables and Arrays, so they don’t need to figure so prominently in the public API of the package.
