+Summary: [System.StringComparer] StringComparer isn't *really* Serializable
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+StringComparer is marked as Serializable, but the classes that descend from it (StringComparer
++StringCultureComparer, +OrdinalComparer, and +OrdinalIgnoreCaseComparer) are not marked 
+as Serializable, which results in an exception any time that an attempt to serialize a 
+StringComparer is made.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Get StringComparer.CurrentCulture, StringComparer.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase, etc.
+2. Try to Serialize it
+3. Experience the pain of unexpected exceptions
+Actual Results:
+Exceptions are thrown because the non-abstract classes are not marked as Serializable
+Expected Results:
+No Exceptions should be thrown
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+The presence of the Serializable attribute on each of the classes seems to be the only thing 
+preventing proper behavior for these classes.
