The above was not complete clear. The ovirtsdk4.writer.Writer and
ovirtsdk4.reader.Reader classes are part of the contract of the SDK, it
is safe to use them. The specific writer/reader classes, for example
VmReader or VmWriter, are not part of the contract, and they may change
in the future without notice, so try to avoid using them directly.
