[Mono-list] Serialization problem between Mono and .NET

After I readed your e-mail I got this in my mind quickly, it's obviously
difficult to serialize generics and I remember now because of some work I
have done on C++ templates serialization.

One thing that is interesting is that MS .NET marks the Dictionary class as
[Serializable] and so it's supposed to work, anyway I got that I should
avoid remoting generic types.

Just for curiosity, if I make a generic class marshalled by reference, do
you know if it will work?
