Zope's mailing lists currently seem to have problems...

You cannot pickle acquisition wrappers, it simply will not work.

The current ZODB code allows you to store wrapped objects as
attributes of persistent objects. It catches the resulting
pickling exception, unwraps the object and tries again.

Whether or not you unwrap yourself or let the ZODB do it:
you loose the acquisition context. Later when you access
your object again (load it), you must rewrap the object.
When the object is stored as an attribute of a persistent
object this rewrapping happens automatically -- but
usually not with the original context!
