Yes, pickling and putting classes in the config file are incompatible.
This makes perfect sense if you consider that pickles saves classes
by reference, and there is no reason it will be able to find your
file to load the code from them. Making class picklable is not important
while testing -- feel free to run with --no_save during early development
stages, especially for demonstrations. I tend to have serious allergies
to putting class definitions in the config file anyway :)
Anyway, not only is this limitation inherent, nobody has plans to
make it go away.
