pickle: 32bit vs 64bit

I have ordered a new Athlon64 PC running linux x86_64.
I'm using Pyro to communicate between python programs running on
different machines.
I know that, because Pyro's communication is based on pickle, that the
different machines have to run the same Python (major) version: that
is, it did not work after I just upgraded ONE machine from Py2.2 to
How will this be when all machines run Python2.4, but one will be
compiled as a 64bit application, the others 32bit ?

(If it works for 2.4, will it still work for Python2.5, where lists can
be larger than 2GB ONLY on 64bit-Python ? [of course I mean the case
where the lists are actually (much) shorter than 2GB !!] )
