If you use Record builders you will currently get this behavior in the java
AFAICT, there's no builder equivalent in the python implementation yet.
In python maybe we can skip having a builder because we can distinguish
between "key maps to None" from "Dict does not contain key".
Does that sound reasonable? Care to file a ticket and maybe propose a patch?
or more likely the generic implementation:http://avro.apache.org/docs/1.7.7/api/java/org/apache/avro/generic/GenericRecordBuilder.html
or an example of the builder in generated specific code:http://avro.apache.org/docs/current/gettingstartedjava.html#Creating+Users
