Nice work!

Wrt Oslo, the serialization hook needs to go in from the start,
obviously, but I'd recommend developing the base object class in Nova in
a way (e.g. by abstracting away nova-isms) that it can easily be moved
to Oslo later at the moment when another project wants to use it.
Starting it in oslo-incubator when no other projects are using it would
just be unnecessary overhead for you.
