how to go around non-picklable object types?

There are certain types of objects that can't be pickled, like file objects.
My question is how could I pickle a hierarchy while automatically skipping
all such objects instead of just aborting the pickle when it comes across
The only thing I can think of is to make my own classes that wrap file
objects and so forth and use __getstate__ to leave out the underlying file,
etc. objects, or to set __getstate__ for every class that holds an offending
object type and filter such objects out of dictionaries when I pickle those.
And I don't even have a list of common object types that would make it
Is there a better way? thx..
