Since changeset 4059e871e74e (issue #19219), it becomes more clear in the source code that reading data from marshal can fail. It was already true in Python 3.3, but less explicit.

Failures are not documented in Doc/c-api/marshal.rst.

Failures are not tested in zipimport.c, maybe also in other files.
