Yes, I suppose it would.  I'll put it on my list, but so many other
things to do :-(

Well, in terms of the FIFO I/O, they're pretty-darned efficient in
Linux, at least as efficient as disk I/O,
  although since FIFOs (named pipes) are implemented in kernel memory,
they're typically a lot

I've never needed the XMLRPC stuff to "go real fast", since I typically
use it to modify flow-graph
  parameters that change infrequently.  One of the things I use it for
in one of my applications that I
  did for a customer is for active RFI excision for a science
application.  The flow-graph produces
  a spectral estimate which is sent over a FIFO to an external program
that analyses the spectrum, and
  then, if necessary, sends back parameters for a multi-notch filter
into the flow-graph.
