* Tim Egbert
| Java is able to do remote method invocation (RMI) which is a neat
| concept.  It is the basis for Jini, another neat idea.  Does Python
| have anything like RMI?

Yes: CORBA. See <URL: http://www.dstc.edu.au/Fnorb/ >. I think there
also are some bindings to various C ORBs floating around. Compared to
RMI CORBA has the advantage that it is completely vendor-, language-
and platform-independent.
