I wouldn't be surprised, though, if the approach of using an inner
class called DefaultSerialization has gone stale, and there are now
better ways of making Kaffe's Hashtable compatible with Suns.

Does anyone remember if Sun's VM ever at any point included a
"DefaultSerialization" inner class which was magical?  (I checked
JDK1.4 and JDK1.3 --- just by using reflection, mind you. :)

I guess I'll try "fixing" Hashtable to not use this magic inner class
(and still be compatible with Sun's serialized classes).  This
exercise will probably make the motivation for DefaultSerialization
