I agree the right tradeoff is not easy to find, but I don't think we should introduce a regression in _pickle.c just for the sake of making it more consistent with pickle.py's bugs. So _pickle.c behaviour should probably be preserved, and pickle.py should be improved to accept unpickling 4G pickles.
