    A bit late to the conversation as I've noticed this hasn't been merged yet.
    > I don't think there's a use case in the context of the python GLV, but we 
have that use case in GraphSON in legacy support for TinkerPop 2.x based 
GraphSON (the migration scenario mentioned). I don't know that we'd extend that 
to Python. 
    Considering that the GraphSONIO provides both a simpler API and easier 
integration as noted by @davebshow, plus it doesn't need to account for the 
legacy support, there are only benefits with this approach.
    > I guess the point here is to try to maintain API consistency across all 
the languages, even if we don't quite have all the support for all the features 
from Java applicable to Python just yet.
    That's indeed a very good point. Assuming the main users of this API are 
the GLV implementors, then I'm wondering if making it idiomatic for the target 
platform shouldn't be the top goal.
