Best way to pickle functions

Ah, you'd think it would be that easy :P

The problem with just importing a module is that the module is then
cached in memory. Multiple copies of the program are running on a
server, and each of them have something akin to a "randomfunctions"
module. When the first program is accessed, it loads
"randomfunctions". When the second program is accessed, it uses the
"randomfunctions" module already in memory, even though it doesn't
contain the right functions. So, I have to pull in these functions
