I think I asked once, but the need to pickle things like
iterators was not so evident to - was it Guido?
Actually, you are right. Why should things not be picklable, if it
is possible with not so many headaches.
I agree that prickling frames is not that obvious how to do,
and the Stackless way is also a bit specific.
But even if frames would not be re-runnable, pickling makes
sense for diagnostics. Allow a traceback to be pickled
and diagnosed on a different machine.
great idea, please try!
