That depends which server you use.  The SimpleXMLRPCServer uses
the standard Python SocketServer stuff, so you can do it in
as many different ways as you want.

I use xml-rpc, but instead of over HTTP, I actually do it over
SSH (using the Paramiko library for the SSH).  It works well
for cross country/continent stuff.

In another project I just use the default one request at a time
handler in the Python xmlrpc server end.  The client is in PHP
running on the same machine.
