Such a person is much more likely to know about and find use for 
language independent json than Python-specific pickle. The tutorial was 
written before json existed, but if it were written today, json would 
seem to me to be the better choice for first exposure to serialization. 
If someone cares enough to write a patch, I think it should be considered.
