Not quite: "import pickle" merely readies the machinery that objectifies
pickles. In order to objectify a pickle, you have to call pickle.loads:
>>> import pickle # get ready to objectify a pickle, but don't do it yet
>>> x = SomeClass(some_value, some_other_value)
>>> s = pickle.dumps(x) # now s contains a pickle
>>> y = pickle.loads(s) # this actually objectifies the pickle known as s
Now back to your regularly scheduled holy war.
