  I have been using the rpc module found in Demo/rpc a
bit.  It seems to work pretty well and I am able to
get a 100% python (no C modules of my own) program
to talk RPC to our C++ servers.  Since python seems
to include many other network protocols in the standard
library and the rpc module seems to work fine with
2.2b1 (after a very small patch), perhaps it should be
made a part of the standard library?  It seems that
the xdr module in Demo/rpc has already been put in.

  This patch makes the rpc module use xdrlib instead
of xdr.  It might be better to rename all of the xdr
references insead of doing the trick I do here :).

I started looking at the bugs in chronological order in the hope that I
can close some issues that don't make sense any more. Can I close this
one? I am almost sure that this module is not going to be included in
stdlib (I myself haven't used this module, though).

Go ahead.

Closing as there is no activity for long time and the request is
unlikely to be accepted, anyway.
