Thanks for the lightning fast response, Michael!

Okay, cool.  I'll give it a try.

As pickle is a pure Python module which works (I'm pretty sure I tried

Right on.  I'll let you know what I discover.  Just to give you some
background, Sylvain and I are looking at using memcached and pickled Python
objects as a form of InterProcess Communication between cPython and .NET via
IronPython.  If that works as it should, we then plan to look into adding
Axon/Kamaelia to the mix to handle the concurrency aspect of passing around
data objects between disparate systems.

For the curious, I will update this thread once the first part is working

Thanks for your help!
