Summary: cPickle documentation incomplete

Initial Comment:
Many of the differences between the cPickle module and
the pickle module appear undocumented, despite a claim
in the cPickle module that the pickle docs explain the
differences.

For example, I just found that cPickle.Pickler() can be
called without a file argument, which makes it use an
internal list to store the pickled data; and that in
that case it has a method getvalue() that returns the
contents of that list as a string; and that its dump()
method takes a second argument which, if true, calls
the getvalue() method.  Who knows what else it supports.

Someone should go over the cPickle source and compare
the API *carefully* with the documented pickle API.

Unassigning myself; clearly, I've not had time for this.
