thanks for all of the help.  My initial solution is to pickle my  
object, with the text-based version of pickle, and send it across  
rpc.  I do this because the actual thing I am sending is a  
dictionary, with lots of arrays, and other things.  I'll have a look  
at the format that Robert sent, because that looks useful for other  
things I am doing.

Sebastien, why is sending python objects over the wire not so  
useful?  is there a better way to do this sort of thing than xmlrpc?   
I thought it looked particularly simple (other than this pickling  
issue, of course.  :)  ).


		thanks,
