For, instance XML-RPC.Â FromÂ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XML-RPC%c2%a0%c2 "XML-RPC" also refers generically to the use of XML for remote procedure call, independently of the specific protocol". Â

this functionality. HPX comes to mind (though it has to be noted
that HPX does much more than just RPCs).

have to mess with the networking code?
