Subject [Math] Serializable (again)
Date Mon, 07 May 2012 20:16:18 GMT

There is another complaint about some class not being "Serializable":

I don't want to argue all over again.

We should probably add a section in the user guide stating the policy with
regards to this issue.
The problem is that I don't know what the policy is.

Either we agree that supporting Serializable is none of our business (my
viewpoint), and I can add that section; or we continue to be sloppy on this
issue and just blindly write "implements Serializable" whenever we get such
a complaint (stating in the Javadoc that the serializable form is not to be
relied on, in the sense that any two versions of CM can produce forms that
are not compatible).
