      Description

      I will be working on a patch to make the initial Arrow C++ libarrow.so library callable from Cython (http://cython.org/) extensions. For the uninitiated, Cython is the modern "gold standard" for interoperability with C++ libraries. I have used it recently to create Kudu's Python client (https://github.com/apache/incubator-kudu/tree/master/python/kudu).

      A significant amount of Python "glue code" will be needed to interoperate with pandas, NumPy, and other standard Python libraries (in addition to Python's built-in scalar data types), but these will be the subject of many follow up JIRAs.
