Not according to the documentation:

"""The copy_reg module provides support for the pickle and cPickle 
It provides configuration information about object constructors which are 
not classes."""

Hmm.  Maybe that last bit should actually say "object types that do not 
support __reduce__ or other pickling protocols", now that everything's a 
class.  Other than that, it seems dead on to what you're trying to do.
