Felix Cheung commented on SPARK-17865:

I see. So then we could either omit the support for global session/SharedState 
in R since there is only one, or, alternatively build support for it.

For the latter, I think a simple approach would be to add a flag for 
sparkR.session.stop(keep.global.session = TRUE) in which case the SparkContent 
and global session will not be stopped and will be reused when a new session is 
initialized. With that we could then add methods for global temp view and so on.

Do we believe there will be more features around global session in the future? 
If so there might be good reason to support this in R.
