#4 Allow pickling and unpickling


It should be allowed to pickle and unpickle CLIPS entities
through shadow classes; the entities should be rendered
in a way that just rebuild the corresponding objects
without reporting stuff that cannot be recreated.

In a preliminary version inter-entity dependencies will
probably be handled without an excessive care: in case
of broken dependency the system would probably just
complain with an exception.

    Apart from the dependency problems, there are also different
    hurdles to the implementation of this request, such as the
    impossibility to determine the size of the pickle-able form
    of each entity. Another issue is, that in order to "dump" an
    entity to a non-disk file, it would be necessary to rewrite
    the entity I/O funcions in a more uniform way.
