Re: Adding serialized version uid tests to mauve

I think it would be useful.  Even more useful would be something to
make sure that the actual serialization is interoperable: make sure
some test platform can interoperate with the JDK.  This would probably
require a new test platform; the current one can't really do something
like this.

There's the README, but that's about it.
The build setup is a bit dumb, really.  I've occasionally considered
moving the key selection from `make' to `configure', since that is
imho easier to understand.  However my Mauve hacking time is
essentially nil.
