Interesting. I imagine that this is fixible in a somewhat straightforward way, although it is probably tied up with the general encoding mess in Z2.
Yes, that's likely where the problem comes from. IMHO there is no reason to remove/deprecate it, but on the other hand it should not be advertised as a really user-friendly and easy way of exporting. It's still somewhat of a second class citizen when it comes to exporters. It might be in need of some warning stickers on the package ;)

Can you give an example of a first-class exporter?  I'm not aware
of a general solution. I guess there are solutions based on Archetypes.
It should definately be advertized for what it is, but it is certainly
much more than I realized in the past.

That was just a metaphor. For me, only the standard binary zexp exporter qualifies as "first class" exporter at the moment because it "just works". Apart from esoteric use cases like importing data into older ZODB implementations, which is highly questionable IMHO.
