Alexandre Vassalotti (thanks a lot!) has recently finalized his work on
the PEP 3154 implementation - pickle protocol 4.

I think it would be good to get the PEP and the implementation accepted
for 3.4. As far as I can say, this has been a low-controvery proposal,
and it brings fairly obvious improvements to the table (which table?).
I still need some kind of BDFL or BDFL delegate to do that, though --
unless I am allowed to mark my own PEP accepted :-)

(I've asked Tim, specifically, for comments, since he contributed a lot
to previous versions of the pickle protocol.)

The PEP is at http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-3154/ (should be
rebuilt soon by the server, I'd say)

Alexandre's implementation is tracked at
