The "stackless" rpc.py is also not an implementation of Sun RPC.  It
just uses Stackless tasklets to enable direct Python function function
calls from server to client and vice versa.  Perhaps it was bad naming
on my part, but I assumed remote procedure calls was a general
technique rather than just a Sun RPC protocol.
