No, unlike to marshal the pickle format is a Turing-complete language. Just loading pickle data can cause to execution of arbitrary code. marshal is more "safe" in this regard -- in worst case you can just crash when load it.

It may be interesting to make marshal deserialization more robust if it does not affect performance. But it would be a new feature, not a bug fix, and not a security fix.
