Subject Re: "overloaded method value updateStateByKey ... cannot be applied to ..." when Key is a Tuple2

I'm missing something simpler (I think).  That is, why do I need a Some instead of Tuple2?
 Because a Some might or might not be there, but a Tuple2 must be there?  Or something like

Adrian, do you know if this is documented somewhere? I was also under the impression that
setting a key's value to None would cause the key to be discarded (without any explicit filtering
on the user's part) but can not find any official documentation to that effect

My understanding is that the reason you have an Option is so you could filter out tuples when
None is returned. This way your state data won't grow forever.

 Perhaps some day I will understand this.
