2.0.1 ... hm... I do not remember how life was back then ;)

then provide callback to the CrossValidation and there you can collect
anything you like from your classifier upon completion of every split.
e.g. look at

I guess ;)

you can with above mentioned callback

if you decide to gather probabilities on both training and testing
samples, then you might need indeed manual loop with explicit .train
.predict so you get needed probabilities at the right moment.  Otherwise
-- callback should be sufficient
