    I think it makes sense to keep cleanup() has a user-visible function rather than forcing
them to rely on finalizers. In general, I suppose cleaning up an RDD means it is no longer
valid to use while unpersisting just means it's no longer taking up space in the BlockManager.
I can see use cases for either.
