Hi!  I wrote the mango xml-rpc stuff awhile back.  It's a bit slow, but I
don't know of any bugs in it.  (But I haven't used it in awhile, so I don't
even know if it works in DMD1.0.)  I'm currently working on porting
mango.xml.sax to tango and will then be porting xml-rpc over to the
Tango-compatible SAX.  It should be much, much faster.  I'm not making any
guarantees as to API compatibility, though.  In fact, I'm considering
re-writing the Xml-Rpc API since I haven't been particularly satisfied with
the interface code I've been writing with it.

Expect beta versions of this stuff pretty soon- I've got a big project
waiting on it ;)... If you've got any ideas or comments on the new efforts,
please let me know- put up a post on dsource's mango forum and we'll
discuss it.  I'm pretty open to suggestions on the xml-rpc API right now.
