> Sorry, what does "instancing" mean?

He means "keeping track of instance identities", so that objects 
that were shared before marshal continue to be shared after loading.

> And does this change bring interesting features?

"interesting" to whom?

> And is there an impact on regular .pyc files?

Definitely. It may now contain 't' (interned) codes again, and it may contain 'r' (reference) codes. The size of the pyc files may decrease.
