We're using Thrift for RPC over AMQP [1], but you can use it purely as a
serialization library, without RPC (so you don't need Twisted and txAMQP at
all). Serialized Thrift structures tend to be 50%-80% smaller than the
equivalent JSON ones. Also, if you're using Python, Thrift is slightly faster
than cjson.

I wouldn't use pickle for serializing objects and sending them over the
network, as its not cross-platform and completely insecure:
