[Mono-list] Problems serializing 'object' classes

The serializer needs to know all types involved in an object tree before
serializing it. If you are using a Mono web service client, the only way
to do it is by applying an attribute to the CORBAANy class:
[XmlInclude(typeof(yourclass))], or the the "value" property:
[XmlElement(typeof(yourclass))]. If you are using the XmlSerializer
directly, there is a constructor which takes an array of types, and you
can add there any type needed.
