[Python] Recognize datetime.timezone.utc as UTC on conversion python->pyarrow

    Details

      Description

      Related to ARROW-5248, but specifically for the stdlib datetime.timezone.utc, I think it would be nice to "recognize" this as UTC. Currently it is converted to "+00:00", while for pytz this is not the case:

      from datetime import datetime, timezone
      import pytz
      
      print(pa.array([datetime.now(timezone.utc)]).type)
      print(pa.array([datetime.now(pytz.utc)]).type)
      

      gives

      timestamp[us, tz=+00:00]
      timestamp[us, tz=UTC]
