You can also use XML-RPC (http://www.xmlrpc.com/) or SOAP
(http://www.develop.com/SOAP/).  In Fredrik Lundh's xmlrpclib library
(http://www.pythonware.com/products/xmlrpc/) you can access the dump and
load functions without actually using the rest of the protocol if you like.
I suspect there are similar hooks in soaplib
