In the long term we're going to need a more official way for non-core
serialization to create uninitialized objects. I suspect it's more
likely to look like sun.reflect.ReflectionFactory than
However, the security problems are great. I haven't heard any
suggestion about how to expose this feature to user-created libraries
without breaking Java security, and I suspect there may be none.
