I think we will still need to maintain _utc global indefinitely to keep the old pickles readable.

On the other hand, it looks like support for qualnames is only available with pickle protocol 4, so I don't see any downside from from storing the full qualname other than an 8-byte increase in the size of the pickle.

I guess my position on this will be +0:  I'll accept a patch if someone will submit it, but I am unlikely to do it myself.
