[Neo4j] Reference node pains.

Hello.

I have one question and a comment:

QUESTION: Is the reference node always id 0 on a newly created graph?

COMMENT: By chance, will you guys remove the concept of a reference node into the future. I've noticed this to be a pain in the side for people moving between various graph systems. Going from Neo4j to iGraph to TinkerPop to etc. The reference node, if the user is not conscious, begins to build as data is migrated into and from Neo4j graphs. And what ensues is a data bug. Perhaps a GraphDatabaseServer = new GraphDatabaseService(String directory, boolean createReferenceNode). ...?

Thanks,
Marko.
