It does not only seem faster, it *is* at least one whole order of magnitude 

Types richer and more satisfying to program is in the eye of the beholder, 
like beauty - I find nested "dictionaries" the most versatile and rich type 
there is, and that's difficult with Corba, but easy with xml-rpc.

The beauty of xml-rpc is in it's simplicity - no large libraries needed, 
protocol can be debugged "manually", and no need for a co,lex broker as in 

The plan was to *start* with xml-rpc, but to bolt on other RPC interfaces 
later, like for example a corba interface. We can have any number of RPC 
interfaces we want.
