hi Dmitriy,

I created the following JIRA related to PySpark
which seems relevant. I would be happy to collaborate with you on
this. Since I understand that the Spark developers are exploring an
in-memory columnar layout for Spark DataFrames/Datasets and Spark SQL
any conversion code we write right now may end up being temporary.
Hopefully the Spark columnar memory layout will end up being very
nearly the same as the official Arrow layout so that limited or no
conversion will be necessary.
