Serializers don't work with GenericRelations

Alexander Solovyov <alexander.solovyov@…> reports that a model with a GenericRelation doesn't serialize properly; he has tried XML, JSON,and python serializers, and has problems with all of them. Under XML, for example, he gets:

Problem installing fixture 'product/fixtures/initial_data.xml': 'int' object has no attribute 'content_type'

The generic relation serializes as:

<field to="tag.taggeditem" name="tags" rel="GenericRel">
 <object pk="10"></object>
 <object pk="11"></object>

Which, by inspection, is ambiguous.
