Yes it is. Mauve now contains an explicit check for this. Creating a
serialized ArrayList by gcj can be read by a Blackdown-1.3.1-FCS VM and
also the other way around. I also fixed some bugs in Kissme to make sure
that the GNU Classpath version and the libgcj version can read each
others serialized form (ObjectIn/OutputStream have diverged a bit).
