Melt y cast en Spark con scala

Trabajar con Spark usando Scala implica renunciar a ese paraíso que son las funciones melt y (d)cast de reshape2.

¿O no?

val meltDF = sqlContext.applySchema(df.map(x => Row.fromSeq(x.values.toList)), newStructure)


/** cast **/

val castDF = meltDF.groupBy("id").pivot("var").sum("value")
