It would be ideal if our object references were
picklable. It would, to start off with, allow servant
objects that contain CORBA object references to be
pickled (thus allowing persistence, as the ZODB provides).

    Note that this has more limited functionality than it may
    seem: if you pickle the object reference and the object it
    refers to dies and goes to heaven (or is pickled and
    unpickled, as ZODB would do), it will dangle.

    Jason suggests providing a callback for this, so users can
    take care of the references on unpickling.
