The typical pattern for a custom classloader would also use:

   Thread thread = Thread.currentThread();
   ClassLoader oldLoader = thread.getContextClassLoader();
   try {

   } finally {

That way, any dependent classes would get picked up properly even if 
using reflection.

Well, for 4.0.18, one of the bugs/features we need to put in is a way to 
customize the persistence (primarily for jdbc-style sessions, but I 
believe some others want to customize the capability.)

So I can keep this use-case in mind when I put together that API.

But it might be cleaner to use the ContextClassLoader pattern with a 
session-config so you don't actually need to write a custom serializer.
