    Chris> I just ran across something that looks like a very unfortunate interface
    Chris> change in the pickle module:

    Chris> Python 2.2:  dump(object, file[, bin])
    Chris> Python 2.3:  dump(object, file[, protocol[, bin]])

>From the docs:

    Changed in version 2.3: The protocol parameter was added. The bin
    parameter is deprecated and only provided for backwards compatibility.
    You should use the protocol parameter instead.

I don't know if that's sufficient for your needs, but it does suggest that
dump() calls which used the bin parameter should be inspected.
