Re: pyarrow and DictionaryBatches

hi Naveen -- there is not an API to generate them separately right
now; they are written as part of serializing the schema. I don't see
an issue with adding APIs to create them as buffers separate from the
schema message. Feel free to open a JIRA and/or submit a PR
