Nope.  I tweaked your script to contact my XML-RPC server over the net
(about 20-30ms ping times between client and server) and just make
server.echo() calls.  It took between 1.6 and 2.5 seconds real time running
python 2.4a0 (aka CVS) on the client and 2.2.3 on the server.  Note that the
server is in production, so the different times were probably due to
transient server load.
