This is not super easy to do, but possible.

1)  You would probably need to use the range partitioner to partition 
the vertices (or else they will be interspersed across partitions).
2)  You would be to add a partition store implementation that kept the 
vertices sorted (i.e. TreeMap)

Alternatively, you can write a simple map-reduce job to do the sort of
