Very interesting and useful. Please create a patch from trunk. See

> In certain cases, running multiple random walks on the same graph may be desired (e.g.,
the centerpiece algorithm). The current implementation(s) for random walks on graphs are designed
for a single random walk. Therefore, running multiple random walks can be done sequentially
or by spawning multiple independent random walks, which can be inefficient and harder to manage
within GIRAPH.
> The idea is to extend the basic Random Walk examples so that the vertices are aware that
they participate in multiple random walks at the same time.
