[Stackless] Fwd: deepcopying (pickling) channels

Two things:

 - Just guessing: Is it something in copying the closure of self.func2 that
triggers the pickling of modules?
 - With 'any mechanism for excluding values from a pickle', do you mean

The latter could probably provide a workaround, but also more
administration that would only be needed during debug runs.

Cheers, Lars
