Oh, I can use XML-RPC just fine, as my (apparently quite
buzzword-compliant) company wants to give their products in future a SOAPy
flavour (they kept mishearing me saying SOAP when I was saying Zope ;). I
just thought that CGI XML-RPC would also handle parsing POST/GET
parameters -- well, it would have been too easy then. Sigh.

I guess I'll have to parse the parameters by hand, and using XML-RPC
at a later stage of the processing pipeline.
