I have pushed a new branch, 'merge_py2_py3k', which basically holds the
existing Py3k forks (from master) alongside the Pyton-2 forks (from
'py2_explicit_bytes'):

 https://github.com/zopefoundation/zodbpickle/tree/merge_py2_py3k

After thrashing and failing in my attempt to have the Python code
straddle, I instead have separate versions (based on Python 2.7 and 3.2),
and a unifying 'zodbpickle.pickle' module which pulls in the standard API
from the appropriate module.  This solution is ugly, but it does allow
for running tests cleanly on each supported version of Python.  It also
minimized the extent of patching for each fork (the straddled version I
discarded was a franken-module by comparison).

I would like to merge this branch to master early next week and make a
release, so that we can evaluate merging the 'py3' branch of ZODB.

Thoughts?  Note that I have not yet addressed the portions of my proposal
which deal with analyzing / converting existing databases, or with the
possibly-needed wrapper storage (for on-the-fly conversion).
