[issue9094] Make python-m pickletools do something useful

New submission from Alexander Belopolsky <belopolsky at users.sourceforge.net>:

Attached patch makes python -m pickletools <picklefile> print symbolic disassembly of a pickle to stdout.  If the idea is well received, I will add help option, usage string and possibly -o option to redirect output to a file.

I am not sure that current "run doctest" behavior is worth preserving given that one can always do python -m doctest Lib/pickletools.py instead.
