No no, the GUID doesn't go in user land objects. It only goes in the registry. The user land objects only use the symbol. The GUID is just the entry into the registry, used internally by the serialize library.

IOW, I'm saying that symbols are better than obfuscated strings because *even if you use obfuscated strings* for managing the installation of globally shared symbols, those obfuscated strings are internal to the library and not exposed to client code or client objects. The client objects just use the clean symbol.
