Isn't this called ZEO? d8)ZEO could be a model for this - but ZEO stores the pickles to zodb. What if I wanted to queue the pickle up and take some kind of long term processing action on it? Store it in a network file system -- which may have a high write latency to, put it in a data base for which there were no zope connectors, etc.
Please be _very_ detailed about your particular use. At least from what wrote so far: this sounds like an idea of the last century.
