I want to do SOAP like calls from a device who's libraries
don't include SOAP.  I'm thinking of using simple HTTP posts,
but I'm going to want to send arrays and hashes.

First, what do I need to be aware of when sending arbitrary
data by a POST, and Second, is there a universally supported
version of what python can do with pickle?  I mostly need
python and PHP, but perl would be nice too.
