Nice idea. Unfortunately RPC's ( including Java RMI ) don't scale. Thats
why CORBA and J2EE were created. Simple RPC mechanisms like this
inevitably end up being extended piece by piece until you have
reproduced most of the CORBA functionality. Therefore IMHO I don't think
it is a good idea for boost.
