I released first version (well, two versions) of "PickleShare" today. I plan to make it the persistence sytem (accessed via %store, %bookmark) for next version of IPython; the current persistence system in IPython is a bit "lossy", killing the process loses the changes and two simultaneous IPython sessions step over each other's changes.

I actually looked inte ZODB for this, but as a dependency it's way too heavy. easy_install zodb3 created a crapload of scripts and compiled C code, while pickleshare is something I can just drop into the Extensions folder of IPython. Durus, not being pure python, was not an option either.

The package is available via Cheeseshop.
