You can use DStream.transform for some stuff. Transform takes a RDD => RDD
function that allow arbitrary RDD operations to be done on RDDs of a
DStream. This function gets evaluated on the driver on every batch
interval. If you are smart about writing the function, it can do different
stuff at different intervals. For example, you can always use a
continuously updated set of filters

dstream.transform { rdd =>
   val broadcastedFilters = Filters.getLatest()
   val newRDD  = rdd.filter { x => broadcastedFilters.get.filter(x) }

The function Filters.getLatest() will return the latest set of filters that
is broadcasted out, and as the transform function is processed in every
batch interval, it will always use the latest filters.
