> For this to work, we need:
>  * a check if the Arrow Array could be represented as Pandas Series using the same memory
buffer
>  * a {{numpy.ndarray}} subclass that keeps a reference to the Arrow Array
> With the NumPy C-API it is already possible to create a {{numpy.ndarray}} instance that
uses the Arrow Array memory buffer internally but there is no way to keep track if the {{numpy.ndarray}}
still lives or the underlying memory can be free'd.
