> If a struct contains optional fields with default values the generated python code serialize
differently than Java or C# code.
> In Java or C# optional fields are only serialized if a field was set by the client. If
not the field is omited during serialization. This is possible because C#/Java maintains for
each field a 'isset'-boolean which records if a field was set or not.
> However the generated python code does not have such a 'isset'-structure. It writes every
field which is not equal None. As the constructor initialize the optional fields with their
default value, these fields are written whether they are set or not.
