Ya.. the problem here is that I donot have acces to the socket. I have
written my own transport etc.. but when the socket is getting created,
there is no context for the method and where I know what method I am
going to call, I do not have access to socket.

I would have thought this to be an easy thing to achieve. In order to
make xml-rpc easy to use.. it has become difficult to control.

Anyone have any other ideas ?
