So, if it's good enough for you, a user of java serialization, then 
perhaps those of us who don't use java serialization shouldn't complain. 
  I think we'd want to add to the documentation something to the effect 
that this is all that's been done, and that if the classes change 
substantially then all bets are off.  We do not want to imply that we're 
making any cross-version compatibility guarantees about serialization, 
rather just that folks who're willing to take their chances will not be 
impeded.  Could something like that work?
