Antoine Pitrou added the comment:
I'd like to add that anyone wanting to serialize large data will certainly be
using _pickle (or its ancestor cPickle), since using pickle.py is probably
excruciatingly slow. Meaning we should favour preserving _pickle/cPickle's
behaviour over preserving pickle.py's behaviour here.
