Warren Levy did a serialization audit of libgcj a while back (I think
last year).  He went through and made all the classes compatible with
Sun's serialization.  This is a significant amount of work.  Some of
this affected Classpath (I'm guessing that it affected classes which
were merged), but to my knowledge Classpath hasn't had a complete
audit along these lines.

About RMI: there is a free RMI implementation, from Transvirtual, that
we can integrate into Classpath and libgcj.  However, nobody has done
the work to integrate it yet.
