Please let us know how you make out.  We have NLP  requirements on the
horizon.  I¹ve used NLTK before, but never on Spark.  I¹d love to hear if
that works out for you.

Would love to know if somebody has tried this, only possible problem I can
forsee is non-serializable libraries, else no reason it should not work.
