Hmm. Maybe you can rip some parts out of Twisted?

    Twisted contains twisted.persisted.aot, a module that supports
    serializing into Python source. This has the advantage of using
    Python's own parser and being able to later manually add Python
    code to the file.

There also seem to be various xml-pickles floating around. This might
be an alternative provided you consider XML to be human-readable ;-)
