Github user rxin commented on the pull request:
    Serializer seems ok to add.
    One thing I am not sure about is the mapSideCombine thing -- I'm never a fan of that parameter
even though I added it myself, for the following reasons:
    1. mapSideCombine is a MR term used in Hive that doesn't mean much outside of MR. A more
proper name is partialAggregation.
    2. The underlying implementation should be able to avoid partial aggregation if it finds
that partial aggregation is expensive (i.e. after trying 10000 records, check whether the
hash table size is less than a specific threshold). It is one of the things we can easily
auto tune.
