at the point MethodClosure#readObject is called, the "default" 
readObject for Closure has already happened. So regardless of what I do 
in readObject in MethodClosure, those fields will have been set already. 
We can still throw an Exception of course. I was only thinking that it 
might be good to read all the data, that has been written first, so that 
a stream with multiple objects can then continue without having to know, 
that you first have to read a String to be able to continue. But I was 
probably thinking too hard here (or not enough, depending on your POV ;) 
) and maybe just failing is really the best option.
