As much as I like Pyro, it doesn't quite fit into the roundup Mike and
Uche wrote.  Or at least not entirely. Raw sockets, CORBA, XML-RPC, and
SOAP are all *language independent*, while Pyro is Python-specific.  For
many projects, accessing the same services in different languages is not
an issue, but in some projects it matters.  Unfortunately, if that
specification matters, Pyro is ruled out (as is, for example, Java RMI).

This isn't to say that Irmen's time and size data isn't interesting and
worth knowing.  But just to point out that the article wasn't simply
snubbing Pyro for no reason.

Yours, David...
