That's an unfortunate choice.  Traditionally, "pickling" was always used for
the structure&cycle preserving form of serialization.  Sometimes "marshalling"
was used to describe the naive no-sharing kind of serialization.

Nowadays, it seems that "pickling" is not used very often and "marshalling"
tends to take care of sharing and cycles as well, tho.

Still, in my mind "pickling" implies "the non-naive kind of serialization".
