i love the simplicity of the xml-rpc interface to the google spelling
service (http://google.xmlrpc.com). i find it so much easier to use a small
xmlrpclib-based python script to query for spellings instead of pulling up a
big, clunky browser and using a web page like dictionary.com.
there is a problem though. at work i have to run http through a proxy
server. urllib supports proxies fine, however xmlrpclib is run over httplib
directly. is there chance xmlrpc lib could be modified to examine and use
the http_proxy environment variable like urllib does? the ability of
xml-rpc to run through firewalls is one of its greatest strengths :).
