Sample code first.
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*- # # file: jukoro/pickle.py import cPickle load = cPickle.load loads = cPickle.loads def dump(obj, f): return cPickle.dump(obj, f, protocol=cPickle.HIGHEST_PROTOCOL) def dumps(obj): return cPickle.dumps(obj, protocol=cPickle.HIGHEST_PROTOCOL)
No magic inside - in our own project we've created pickle.py module, the one to be used in place of cPickle from standart library.
As a result we've got an abstraction, which helps us to keep code DRY and improves code manageability.
I like this approach.
