> 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.
