Well, since they are all different objects now, the Java runtime will not 
try to match them anyway, so it is for this special case not really 

However, if you consider a change, I'd like to propose to use everywhere a 
constant that reflects the day of change:

servialVersionUID = 20120724L; // format YYYYMMDD

It's easier then to keep track of changes.
