There is no need that I'm aware of to understand how Python deals with XML
to use XML-RPC.  There is already an xmlrpclib module that hides all XML
details from its users, though to speed things up a bit I urge you to
install Fredrik Lundh's sgmlop module if you decide to use xmlrpclib.  Maybe
if you can describe what you mean by "use it with XML-RPC" we can help you
avoid XML nitty gritty altogether.

XML is no panacea.  I'm sure most of the denizens of c.l.py realize that and
keep their distance when they can. ;-)
