This is exactly what I am considering.  It's perfect for my use case,
considering that we're already running a servlet engine (Tomcat 4.1.x).

I'd rather have the stability of a full-blown, maintained servlet
engine; XML-RPC's spec makes perfomant implementations difficult,
anyhow.  We avoid doing performance-critical operations over XML-RPC.
In the future, we will be using more and more Spread
<http://www.spread.org/>, perhaps eventually via JMS
<http://jms4spread.tigris.org/>.  We may install the XmlRpcServer as
the RPC layer to use over Spread or JMS.
