you're getting None because you're using the wrong conversion
function: this "points" property is basically a float array and here
you're using the path_def conversion which is for bpath (bezier path).

Your code should work with:
    let prop = {Gobject.name = "points"; conv = GnomeCanvas.Conv.points} in ...
