> Currently, RDD#sortByKey() is implemented by a mapPartitions which creates a buffer to
hold the entire partition, then sorts it. This will cause an OOM if an entire partition cannot
fit in memory, which is especially problematic for skewed data. Rather than OOMing, the behavior
should be similar to the [ExternalAppendOnlyMap|],
where we fallback to disk if we detect memory pressure.
