Thanks for the reference, I'll try to get my hands on it. However, right now, 
I'm  just using xmlrpc as a nice, quick and lightweight way of doing rpc 
between two python applications. (if someone can suggest another method,
as easy as this one, I'll be glad to give it a try). 

Concerning the ascii stuff, could someone then explain to me what is meant 
on http://www.pythonware.com/products/xmlrpc/index.htm by :
"xmlrpclib 0.9.9 (aka 1.0b1) is now available. This is a development 
release (hopefully the last one before 1.0 final), which adds support 
for encodings, Unicode, and HTTPS transports." ?
