- speed (!= http)
- sensible protocol (I know too much about JMX to like it, one thing I
know about it is that it is not really compatible with non-java, whereas
SOAP is buzzword number one in serverland)

java webstart might be cool though. But why have your app served up by
MX4J? Is there an advantage there?

Also, I recognize the speedup in delivery time (as you say, it already
works today), and have in no way made up my mind yet. Regardless of all
that, I don't have cycles to write this anyway.
