I think the "worth doing" argument doesn't really hold, given that it's done. The question at hand really is
a) is the patch correct?
b) can we commit to maintaining it, even as things around it may change?

I'm not bothered with the patch being potentially incomplete: anybody wishing to pickle more things should contribute patches for that.

As for a), I think we should give people some time to review, and then wait for beta releases to discover issues. If this is a rarely-used feature, the world won't end if it has bugs.

As for b), I think the main issue is forward compatibility: will pickles created by 3.3 still be readable by future versions?
