yeah, but ... that only help with classpath's classes.
As soon as some third-party jar triggers the miranda
bug, you're back to square one, right? 

I think it would be better to write some docs on how
to fix it. Reminds me that I should fix the miranda
bug in kaffe, btw...

Serialization: I don't think one can get it right
without specifying the serial version ids anyway
because of naming differences of automatically
generated methods in compiler implementations.
