+A serialization binder is an object that inherits from the abstract
+SerializationBinder base class and implements its only method,
+BindToType. During deserialization, the framework calls the BindToType
+method for each object found in the stream. The BindToType method
+examines the type of this object and returns the type of object that
+should be constructed instead. If the binder doesn't want to change
+the type (binders usually change only a few specific types and ignore
+all others) it can simply return nil and the original type as found in
+the stream will be constructed. 
+MSFT probably throws an exception if the type can't be found.
