I think it would be nice to be able to publish using either SOAP or RMI, 
and provide that option to the user in the server configuration panel in 
the tools.  I think RMI has better performance once we remote deployment 
is supported, but SOAP is more reliable through firewalls, so thats why 
it would be good to have it to fall back on.
