Subject Re: Proposal to release the Examples for Scala in V1.3

Qing, its great that you are working on improving the Scala Examples with
documentation and tests.
Ideally, we shouldn't have any memory leaks..it erodes trust with our
users, however I understand it can take significant time and debugging
effort to resolve them. Given that these leaks already exist, may be should
call out on the documentation that this is a known issue and we will work
on it.
IMO for this case making incremental improvements to examples makes sense.

I would like to hear what others think.
