OK, glad you found a work-around.  I'm still not clear on why you would
be pickling up __import__.  I'd try to design the code so you're not
depending on pickling of code, but just data/objects and assume that the
subprocess is launched w/ the required code in place.  But maybe I'm
just a fuddy duddy. ;-)
