  • Chunking the messages and writing them to disk seems like the way to go. I'll be interested to see how this works out for you over the long haul. Can you also chunk large payloads? For instance when you send a 2M MP3 over XML-RPC, the XML message is dwarfed by the MP3 payload. If the library could be smart enough to save 50K chunks and assemble them when the user asks for the payload, I'd say you've got a pretty durn slick library. ;-)
    • Limitations of the underlying protocol, alas. In other words, this must remain compatible with XML-RPC as a whole.

      That doesn't preclude writing an application that uses XML-RPC to send MP3 data in chunks, but the chunking has to be part of the application, not part of the protocol.

      On that note, I will be putting support for chunked transfer-encoding into the library at some point. While this technically flies in the face of the spec, I think that it's both useful enough and important enough to include, re
