If you're not concerned about interoperability with other languages and 
are already using Twisted, I'd go with PB.  Especially if you are using 
complicated datatypes that have to be serialized and sent over the wire 
- PB has a nice Cacheable type that doesn't serialize the whole object. 
  XMLRPC on the other hand is a little simpler and will work with 
third-party stuff.
