Marshal is not very careful in validating its input -- it was written for speedy reading of .pyc files only. I agree that this should be fixed. Since a spurious '0' input character probably isn't the only bad input that it might choke on (it could even dump core!) I'm not going to fix this, but I'll add a feature request to PEP 42: better checking for bad input to marshal.load*().
