+------- Additional Comments From juraj at hotfeet.ch  2006-09-13 17:40 -------
+Searching for "private default constructor c#" with Google seems to
+imply that there is such a thing:
+But even if is doesn't exist, I think it still makes sense to follow
+MS.NET's behaviour for the sake of compability.
+I'm working together with .NET developers who use MS.NET and their
+code doesn't run on Mono because of this difference. I'm not trying to
+deserialize something on Mono which was serialized on MS.NET (of the
+other way around), but just serializing and deserializing data
+structures from scratch.
