The nameserver is purely optional. Regarding the overhead of transport -
well, I didn't check pyro on that, but corba is 10-100 times faster over
the network than soap/xmlrpc. So while the local loopback _might_ be slower
(I'm not even sure about that) than the unix socket, marshalling data as
xml has its own cost overhead.
