Very much.  As Jim notes, supporting date objects is more than a little 
questionable as well.  Dates and times, separate from a date-time, are 
completely unsupported by the bare XML-RPC protocol.  Applications must 
determine what they mean and how to encode them in XML-RPC separately if they 
need to do so.
