how to pickle unpicklable objects

Hi all,

I've been writing an application containing a lot of settings which can be 
changed by the user. I'm using wx.Config to read/write these settings (to 
the windows registry). This means I can only store strings, ints and floats.

However, it would be very convenient if I could also store more general 
objects. It seems to work for wx.Colour, but not for wx.Font. It raises a 
"TypeError: can't pickle PySwigObject objects".

Does anybody a way to get around this? Is there some other module that would 
allow writing general (small) objects to the registry? Some sort of 
serialiser or something?

TIA,
g
