I haven't really been following this list for awhile, because my eyes just
sort of glaze over when everyone starts slinging various XML-related
acronyms (does XML seem to be worse afflicted with this disease than the
rest of the Internet community? seems like it to me). I will throw in my
two cents on this issue (not having noticed the aforementioned catfight in
this list because of optical glazing). I currently use
xmllib+sgmlop+xmlrpclib to do XML-RPC stuff in a production server. If you
can't find a solution that is as easy to use and that performs at least as
well, I'll have to freeze on what I have now. I've tried solutions that
were implemented in straight Python and Python+private C-based extensions.
The former is useless performance-wise, the other is a major headache to
maintain. I for one am thankful that Fredrik Lundh developed and released
both sgmlop and xmlrpclib. They make my days much more pleasant.
