+This class can't be serialized because it has a member which is an
+interface, and interfaces can't be sarialized on its own (although you
+can serialize classes that implement interfaces)
+In any case, I fixed XmlSerializer so it now gives a more informative
+error message.
+Thanks for the bug report!
