Antoine Pitrou added the comment:

Here is a modified patch. The changes are:
- pickle is deemphasized a lot more (it's moved into a "seealso")
- I replaced the terms "encoding" and "decoding" with "serializing" and "deserializing" (the former may be confusing for people who are already struggling to understand the bytes / unicode gap)
- I added a glossary entry for "text file" and pointed to it
