Marshalling is only briefly mentioned in most python books I have, and
"pickling" is declared teh preferred method for serialization.
I read somewhere that Marshalling is version-dependent while pickling is
not, but can't find that reference. OTOH, pickling can lead to loading
of malicious code (I understand) while marshalling only handles basic
Could anyone point me to a reasonable discussion of the pros and cons of
each method for serialization?
