It depends on Five / Zope3:  I haven't used the appropriate versions
(Five 1.0.x, ZopeX3 3.0.x) with it, and don't know whether the faster
product is compatible with them.

Note as well that using "mutable" Python primitives (dicts, lists) is
tricky, as they don't notify *their* container (the persistent
SessionDataObject) when they are mutatated.  If you are using them,
rather than some persistent variant, then you need to rebind them into
the container.  E.g.:

  mapping = SESSION.get('mapping')
  if mapping is None:
      mapping = {}
  mapping['foo'] = REQUEST.form('foo')
  SESSION['mapping'] = mapping  # triggers persistence
