the LabelEncooder is only meant for a single column i.e. target variable.
Is the DictVectorizeer or a manual chaining of multiple LabelEncoders (one
per categorical column) the desired way to get values which can be fed into
a subsequent classifier?
Is there some way I have overlooked which works better and possibly also
can handle unseen values by applying most frequent imputation?
