Concerning the implementation of (not only *xml-based*) RPC, You may want to
take a look at the Mirror library in the vault. One of the reasons I'm
this library is that we are using it for RPCs (besides other things) in several
of the projects at our university.

It needs some work to improve the compilation time and memory requirements
and the docs need to be finished, before it can be submitted for review, but
I think it is fairly usable already.
