[mod_python] passing pickles

I'm thinking of a simple way to pass form data between different
forms. For example, if I have page1 with form1 in it, and then for
page2 dynamically generate the form elements for form2 including data
from form1, how safe is it to put a python pickle in a form element?

for example, something like

<input type="hidden" name="priordata" value="pythonpicklegoeshere" >

when the form is submitted, I should get a req.form["priordata"] that
I can de-pickle right?
