Antoine Pitrou added the comment:

I agree that restoring the string interning behaviour would be a good thing.
However, I don't agree that supporting recursive objects and instantiation is 
useful. marshal is specialized for code objects, and you shouldn't find any 
recursive constants there.

As for the size of pyc files, who cares? Memory footprint may be useful to 
shrink (especially for cache efficiency reasons), but I don't see why we should 
try to reduce the size of on-disk bytecode. And if we do, it would probably be 
simpler to zlib-compress them.
