Awesome, glad to know this. Reopening for now just in case, this is pretty important.

> GiraphConfigurationValidator is supposed to compare the I, V, E, M parameters across
all user-specified classes, and signal mismatches.
> Unfortunately, there are a few issues that make it more of a hassle than a help:
> 1) ReflectionUtils, which is used to extract type information, doesn't work when the
base is an interface instead of an abstract class (this is a problem with VertexValueFactory
and OutEdges, see for example https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GIRAPH-644?focusedCommentId=13640687&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-13640687)
> 2) In at least one case (VertexValueInputFormat), we specialize one argument to Writable.
This will always give a mismatch with the actual type specified in the Vertex. In those cases,
we should bypass checking that argument.
> Ideally we should fix all these issues and also make sure GiraphConfigurationValidator
is called for any job (not only when using GiraphRunner).
> If this can't be easily done, we should at least (partially) disable the checks so that
we don't fail jobs that have nothing wrong.
