New submission from Hagen Fürstenau <hfuerstenau at gmx.net>:

Unpickling e.g. a large list seems to be really slow in Python 3.0.

The attached test script gives the following results for pickling and
unpickling a list of 1M zeros, showing that although the C
implementation seems to be used in Python 3.0, unpickling is even slower
than with the "pickle" module of Python 2.6!
