It's more than that. Some of the implementation of RMI is native methods that
needto do some inspection of objects as well as pickling and the like. These
methods are not
hard to write but you've got to be pretty knowledgeable in the full RMI
as well as the deep down details of objects inside of the JVM.

Sun has an RMI spec that has enough of the information in it one can figure it
all out.
