    29 Because all session data is serialized to [http://json.org/ JSON] for transmission, only the basic data types supported by JSON are allowed: strings, integers, floats, and booleans, as well as lists and dictionaries. I consider this an advantage, as it forces you to decouple session data from the classes and data structures used in the application code. Also, the JSON serialization is often significantly more compact than e.g. `pickle`.
     29Data stored in the session needs to serializable using the Python `pickle` mechanism.
