> (please see this JIRA for additional comments)
> MADlib does a simple average of the k-nearest neighbors to come up with the
> final value for classification and regression. Doing a weighted average 
> instead
> might be a desirable functionality. The weighting for the average can be 
> based on the
> distance of the k-nearest neighbors.
> We can probably provide an optional parameter to let users choose how the 
> final
> score has to be computed (avg or weighted avg).
> This JIRA applies to classification and regression.
