OK, so there are two root issues here:

* Django uses __init__(str()) roundtripping, which is not explicitly supported by the library, and worked by accident with previous versions.  That it works again with 3.3+ is another accident, and a bug.

(The change for #16611 reintroduces "lax" parsing behavior that the security fix was supposed to prevent.)

* BaseCookie doesn't roundtrip correctly when pickled with protocol >= 2.  This should be fixed in upcoming bugfix releases.

I would advise Django to subclass SimpleCookie and fix the pickling issue, which is not hard (see attached diff).
