I just went ahead and created a PoC for that. I have to say that 
OpenWhisk code base is really nice and intuitive, as well as the 
documentation! Nice job on that!

I opened the PR #2403 to start a discussion on whether this integration 
makes sense and if this would be the right way to do it. Also, I never 
did anything in Scala, so, forgive me if I made some gross mistakes :)

A possible next step is to add propagation data to the invocation meta 
data, so that we can do proper distributed tracing for chains of actions.
