Subject Re: how can I write a language "wrapper"?

Just FYI, it would be easiest to follow SparkR's example and add the DataFrame API first. Other
APIs will be designed to work on DataFrames (most notably machine learning pipelines), and
the surface of this API is much smaller than of the RDD API. This API will also give you great
performance as we continue to optimize Spark SQL.

Rosen -- It covers some of the issues like closure capture, serialization, JVM communication
that you'll need to handle for a new language.
