Interesting - thanks for the links. I'll take a look

Performance wise, maybe our app is peculiar, but for us XML/RPC 
absolutely flies. We use it for a variety of things, but one aspect is remote 
log and stats monitoring - which generates a very high rate/volume, of short 
to medium size (http payload wise) xml/rpc calls. Once we got keep alive 
figured, xml/rpc beat the daylights out of most other things we tried - direct 
socket level, binary messaging was about the only thing to beat it, and then 
not by enough to make the loss of flexibility worthwhile.
