> I have a job which ends up calling {{org.apache.spark.sql.Row.toString}} on every row
in a massive dataset (the reasons for this are slightly odd and it's a bit non-trivial to
change the job to avoid this step). 
> {{Row.toString}} is implemented by first constructing a WrappedArray containing the Row's
values (by calling {{toSeq}}) and then turning that array into a string with {{mkString}}.
We might be able to get a small performance win by pipelining these steps, using an imperative
loop to append fields to a StringBuilder as soon as they're retrieved (thereby cutting out
a few layers of Scala collections indirection).
