Gremlin.Net are proxies to the re
     JVM-based Gremlin traversal machine. As such, their `Apply(ITraversal)` 
method does nothing. However, the strategy is
     encoded in the Gremlin.Net bytecode and transmitted to the Gremlin 
traversal machine for re-construction machine-side.
    +=== The Lambda Solution
    +Supporting link:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anonymous_function[anonymous 
functions] across languages is difficult as
    +most languages do not support lambda introspection and thus, code 
analysis. While Gremlin.Net doesn't support C# lambdas, it
    +is still able to represent lambdas in other languages. When the lambda is 
represented in `Bytecode` its language is encoded
    +such that the remote connection host can infer which translator and 
ultimate execution engine to use.

    I don't think that we need curly brackets here. It also looks like this for 
Gremlin-Python in the docs: `map(lambda: ("it.get().value('name').length()",

>             Project: TinkerPop
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: dotnet
>    Affects Versions: 3.3.0, 3.2.6
>            Reporter: Florian Hockmann
>            Assignee: Florian Hockmann
>            Priority: Major
> Gremlin.Net should support lambdas. We already discussed this in [the pull 
> request for TINKERPOP-1752|https://github.com/apache/tinkerpop/pull/712]. 
> Here is what [~spmallette] said over there:

> Any reason we don't support lambdas? Even if .NET can't support them natively 
> for some reason wouldn't we minimally support the ability to pass a 
> python/groovy/etc lambda? it's kinda weird that way, but i think back to the 
> point that kuppitz made on the dev list the other day where he stated that he 
> doesn't always find a way out of using lambdas in production systems he works 
> on - so ultimately users will need that kind of capability i think.
> {quote}
> C# lambdas would require some kind of C# parser on the server side, so at 
> least in the beginning a way to send lambdas from already supported languages 
> in Gremlin.Net should be enough.
