Antoine Pitrou commented on ARROW-2154:
---------------------------------------

Though we might like the fact that {{__eq__}} remains fast and doesn't compare 
contents. But in that case, perhaps it should at least compare the underlying 
pointer and size?

> [Python] __eq__ unimplemented on Buffer
> ---------------------------------------

>                 Key: ARROW-2154
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-2154
>             Project: Apache Arrow
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Python
>    Affects Versions: 0.8.0
>            Reporter: Antoine Pitrou
>            Priority: Minor
>
> Having to call {{equals()}} is un-Pythonic:
> {code:python}
> >>> pa.frombuffer(b'foo') == pa.frombuffer(b'foo')
> False
> >>> pa.frombuffer(b'foo').equals(pa.frombuffer(b'foo'))
> True
> {code}
> Same for many other pyarrow types, incidently.
