;-)  The X is always easy to mold into anything.

Also RMI-II, RMI-2, RMI-NG, ... just other suggestions

Thanks to Marcus that put instrumentation in Cocoon and made me take a 
deep look at how it's done, since I am working on making a debugger.

Also Xindice uses now XMLRPC for transport, I suggested Gianugo about 
using AltRMI. HE needs a special transport to move compiles SAX events, 
what could be done?

Nope. Let's see what others think.
