> It would be very useful to have a binary data reader/writer for DataFrames, presumably
called via {{spark.read.binaryFiles}}, etc.
> Currently, going through RDDs is annoying since it requires different code paths for
Scala vs Python:
> Scala:
> {code}
> val binaryFilesRDD = sc.binaryFiles("mypath")
> val binaryFilesDF = spark.createDataFrame(binaryFilesRDD)
> {code}
> Python:
> {code}
> binaryFilesRDD = sc.binaryFiles("mypath")
> binaryFilesRDD_recast = binaryFilesRDD.map(lambda x: (x[0], bytearray(x[1])))
> binaryFilesDF = spark.createDataFrame(binaryFilesRDD_recast)
> {code}
> This is because Scala and Python {{sc.binaryFiles}} return different types, which makes
sense in RDD land but not DataFrame land.
> My motivation here is working with images in Spark.
