Zope is still running 1.5.2 and thus has a version of cPickle that is at
least that old.  The RCS revision string is

     * $Id: cPickle.c,v 1.72 2000/05/09 18:05:09 jim Exp $

I saw new unicode functions in the Python 2.0 version of cPickle that
weren't in the version distributed with Zope 2.2.1.  Here's a grep buffer
from XEmacs:

    cd /home/dolphin/skip/src/Zope/lib/Components/cPickle/
    grep -n -i unicode cPickle.c /dev/null

    grep finished with no matches found at Fri Sep  1 12:39:57
