[jcifs] Could jcifs.smb.NtlmChallenge made serializable?

Currently we have some problems with JCIFS NTLM Authentication in a clustered 

NtlmHttpFilter caches the NtlmChallenge object in the actual HTTP-session. This 
works fine with a single server. However, in a clustered environment with 
activated session replication, every object that should be written to the 
session must be serializable. NtlmChallenge is not, so our application server 
complains about it.

Would it be possible, to let NtlmChallenge (and jcifs.UniAddress because of the 
reference in NtlmChallenge) implement java.io.Serializable?
