    Description

      Now that we have StringIndexer, we could have spark.ml.classification.Classifier (the abstraction) automatically handle label indexing if the labels are not yet indexed.

      This would require a bit of design:

      • Should predict() output the original labels or the indices?
      • How should we notify users that the labels are being automatically indexed?
      • How should we provide that index to the users?
      • If multiple parts of a Pipeline automatically index labels, what do we need to do to make sure they are consistent?
