I know this is just a strange angry rant, but why do you say this? Do  
you mean that ZODB and ZRPC should be implemented using marshal? Can  
this even be done?

Now if you want to do secure pickles, just sign them with a cripto  
method (completely secure). Simple and I think, the only way to do  
this being secure. Or using a secure transport layer like ssl to  
transfer things with signatures to identify your peers. Not a reason  
to rant, but to install the crypto package.
