> Currently DataFrame.mapPatitions is analogous to DataFrame.rdd.mapPatitions in both Spark
and pySpark. The function that is applied to each partition _f_ must operate on a list generator.
This is however very inefficient in Python. It would be more logical and efficient if the
apply function _f_  operated on Pandas DataFrames instead and also returned a DataFrame. This
avoids unnecessary iteration in Python which is slow.
> Currently:
> {code}
> def apply_function(rows):
>     df = pd.DataFrame(list(rows))
>     df = df % 100   # Do something on df
>     return df.values.tolist()
> table = sqlContext.read.parquet("")
> table = table.mapPatitions(apply_function)
> {code}
> New apply function would accept a Pandas DataFrame and return a DataFrame:
> {code}
> def apply_function(df):
>     df = df % 100   # Do something on df
>     return df
> {code}
