| Well it is pretty simple to say IDs are the answer.  They are indeed
| a possibility.  Try coming up with an implementation which resolves
| circular references and can be rebuilt back into its original
| in-memory data structure.  Implementation is not as simple as it
| sounds...

I did a pilot for my MSc thesis last fall and when I gave up trying to
make Java serialization work with CORBA object structures (all the
objects were in one JVM) I wrote my own XML-based serialization.  

It keeps track of circular references and all that and I did it in one
day, so the implementation isn't all that difficult. The hard part is
making the interface easily useable, which I didn't bother with, since
I just wanted something for my pilot system.

And, yes, it is verbose.
