Python pickle is something many of us have had a love-hate relationship with. We've loved it before using it and hated it afterwards ;-). Even the official documentation at pickle — Python object serialization seems a bit faint in its praise.
Maybe we should put pickle in the Deprecate Python category?
Fair comment? Overly harsh? What do you think?
