    Hi @sun-rui ,
    Thank you for the comments.
    1. This point is easy to do. I'll do the change.
    2. With `key columns` I assume that you refer to the grouping column names. Something
like `Species` in the iris dataset ?
    Actually, in my implementation I do not use the keys on the R side, I use it as a boundary,
I could also write one bit, like dataOut.writeInt(1) just to mark the boundary. But if according
to your 3rd point we want to pass keys to R function like: (Keys, ldf), then we need more
than just a boundary.
    3. Well it might make sense, but currently the user can still access  the grouping columns,
like I did in the examples: 
     df1 <- gapply(
     df, list(df$"Species")
       function(x) {
         data.frame(**x$Species[1]**, mean(x$Sepal_Width), stringsAsFactors = FALSE)
    `**x$Species[1]**` accesses the key .
