I agree the right tradeoff is not easy to find, but I don't think we should introduce a regression in _pickle.c just for the sake of making it more consistent with pickle.py's bugs. So _pickle.c behaviour should probably be preserved, and pickle.py should be improved to accept unpickling 4G pickles. ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue12848> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: http://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
