> ML Evaluator currently requires that metrics be maximized (bigger is better).  That is
counterintuitive for some metrics.  Currently, we hackily negate some metrics in RegressionEvaluator,
which is weird.  Instead, we should:
> * Return the metric as expected (e.g., "rmse" should return RMSE, not its negation).
> * Provide an indicator of whether the metric should be maximized or minimized.
> Model selection algorithms can use the indicator as needed.
