In order to make generated Python structs hashable one needs to add
( python.immutable; )
annotation. This is true for Python 3, in Python 2 technically the annotation is not mandatory, however leads to undesirable situation, when equal objects have different hash values.
If the struct has optional members, then the generated code for read(...) method is wrong and results into undefined local variable error. To fix the issue these variables need to be added to beginning of read(...) method and initialized to None or default values if available.
I have a patch for generate\t_py_generator.cc to fix the issue, but I am not familiar with your procedures for contributors.
