"The following types are supported: None, integers, floating point
numbers, strings, bytes, bytearrays, tuples, lists, sets, dictionaries,
and code objects"

It fails to list bools: True and False

While it states "Not all Python object types are supported; in general,
only objects whose value is independent from a particular invocation of
Python can be written and read by this module." beforehand, it seems
proper to include bools in the list of accepted types
