[Python-Dev] Why is pickle.DEFAULT_PROTOCOL still 3?

Pickle protocol version 4.0 was originally defined back in PEP 3154 and shipped as part of Python 3.4 back in 2011. Yet it's still not the default. There's a number of things that would run faster with it like multiprocessing.

This is too late for 3.7 which is a shame but can we at least bump it for 3.8?
