BryanCutler commented on issue #1689: ARROW-2141: [Python] Support variable 
length binary conversion from Pandas
URL: https://github.com/apache/arrow/pull/1689#issuecomment-370097027
 
 
   @wesm and @xhochy , hopefully this is the right approach.  Do you guys think 
that conversion from `bytearray`s could be supported too?  That is what pyspark 
requires binary data to be for some reason..
