Subject ONI-LDA-C

Hi all,
Vartika mentioned this in a hallway conversation, we decided to bring it up

ONI's LDA implementation
written in C, but most importantly, is GPL Licensed. And, from the looks of
it, it's a hard dependency.

So, as we migrate to Apache, this needs to be changed. Either:
A. it needs to be a softer dependency, or
B. we need to find a substitute.

I have noticed Spark MLLib has LDA, and given that this algorithm is being
called from Spark anyways, Option B (with Spark) would be a reasonable

What do others think? Any other options?
