Given that there is pandas, xarray, dask and more, numpy could as well drop any pretense of supporting dataframe_likes. Or, adjust the recfunctions so we can still work dataframe_like with structured dtypes/recarrays/recfunctions.
I haven't been following the duckarray discussion carefully, but could this be an opportunity for a dataframe protocol, so that we can have libraries ingest structured arrays, record arrays, pandas dataframes, etc. without too much specialized code?
