So the use of pickle is not fair as that doesn't round-trip if you
simply write out a file because py3k pickle doesn't like classic classes
and the new-style classes want copy_reg which is not in existence in
py3k since it was renamed. See pickle2write.py and pickle3read.py (which
are version-agnostic; just following Skip's naming) for the pickle failing.
Now if you skip that one use-case in the example of pickling a
user-defined class then everything works out. I have attached a
hacked-up version of Skip's scripts that take Unicode strings, encode
them in Latin-1 and UTF-8, and then decode them on the other side in
Py3K, all without issue.
In other words I think my solution works and pickle is the trouble-maker
in all of this.
