The attached patch adds another version of cPickle.c's batch_list(),
batch_list_exact(), which is specialized for "type(x) is list". This
provides a nice performance boost when pickling objects that use
lists. This is similar to the approach taken in issue 5670, though the
performance boost on our benchmark is smaller:

Min: 2.231 -> 2.200: 1.39% faster
Avg: 2.266 -> 2.227: 1.72% faster
Significant (t=10.994064, a=0.95)

Benchmark is at
(driver is  ../; was run with "--rigorous -b pickle").
Workloads involving more lists will benefit more.

This patch passes all the tests added in issue 5665. I would recommend
reviewing that patch first. I'll port to py3k once this is reviewed for
