Github user MLnick commented on the pull request:
    @mengxr <> ok, that is interesting. I have always
    advocated for Breeze, but was told 6 months ago that it was a non-starter
    due to these performance overheads. If that has changed I'm super happy.
    Given that all we need for MLlib (for now anyway) is sparse vectors, I am
    still in favour of Breeze. Since I believe breeze-math has great potential
    to become the de facto numpy of Scala (is already really), I believe we
    should rather spend resources making Breeze better where necessary, which
    benefits Spark as well as the rest of the (growing) Scala scientific
    computing community.
