`Estimator`s and `Transformer`s.
     For example, if we have two `LogisticRegression` instances `lr1` and 
`lr2`, then we can build a `ParamMap` with both `maxIter` parameters specified: 
`ParamMap(lr1.maxIter -> 10, lr2.maxIter -> 20)`.
     This is useful if there are two algorithms with the `maxIter` parameter in 
a `Pipeline`.

    -Often times it is worth it to save a model or a pipeline to disk for later 
use. In Spark 1.6, a model import/export functionality was added to the 
Pipeline API. Most basic transformers are supported as well as some of the more 
basic ML models. Please refer to the algorithm's API documentation to see if 
saving and loading is supported.

    +As of Spark 2.3, the DataFrame-based API in `spark.ml` and `pyspark.ml` 
has complete coverage.

    +ML persistence works across Scala, Java and Python.  However, R currently 
uses a modified format,
    +so models saved in R can only be loaded back in R; this should be fixed in 
the future and is

[SPARK-15572](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-15572).

    Yep, what @HyukjinKwon said.  Gotta love the irregularities of the language!
