[Stackless] Problem with Count Objects (itertools) and pickle?

Hello Folks:

Enclosed is a new version of pickle-sieve. I took Andrew Dalke's
advice (it is good advice) and changed the following code

def counter(c):
    i = 2
    while (True):
        i += 1


def counter(c):
    for i in itertools.count(2):

when I hit control C, I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "pickle-sieve-new.py", line 110, in <module>
    pickle.dump(image, fd)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/copy_reg.py", line 70, in _reduce_ex
    raise TypeError, "can't pickle %s objects" % base.__name__
TypeError: can't pickle count objects

Is this meant to so?
