[cgl_discussion] Using XML-RPC for Remote Access to openHpi Libraries

What interfaces/implementation portions do you need RPC for?  Perhaps 
the SAF AIS could be used for your messaging needs for an integrated 
solution?  An HPI implementation that depends on something like rpc is 
unlikely to be widely used for several reasons (security, performance, 
reliability, requirement of more management of an http server and xml 
parser from the administrator).

Shouldn't HPI just reside on one node, and not require multiple node access?
