  I tend to agree, a lot of people are starting designing RPC systems
based on XML + HTTP. Well, I'm not sure it really make sense in the
Gnome context, maybe later if people really agree on the format for
such an RPC.
  But I definitely think that XML support in Gnome is a good idea,
not for RPCs or cut'n paste bufer, but as a document format.
