> Pirk should not depend upon Java serialization as a persistent object format.
> Maintaining support for a variety of versions of Java serialized form can be difficult,
this includes both the querier and responder sides of a PIR.  Alternative formats such as
XML and JSON are more forgiving/extensible.
> Furthermore, and despite Pirk's trust between querier and responder, there are potential
implications for loading the binary representation of Java's serialized instances as a vector
for security vulnerabilities.
