I found another small item here. Currently we have for serialPersistentFields the following:
4203      * @serialField magnitude int[]
4204      *              magnitude array of this BigInteger
4216         new ObjectStreamField("magnitude", byte[].class),
In the @serialField annotation the type should also be byte[], no?
