Re: [xml-rpc] Re: Infoworld's CTO on Web Services

Mark, thanks for the respectful pushback, but that's not true.

Much of the XML-RPC spec is devoted to explaining how to serialize values,
structs and lists.

If you were going to marshall your calls in a different format, you'd still
have to define and explain how serialization works.

This has long been overlooked in the REST-is-Better discussions. (Although I
have pointed it out before.)
