Old clients *already send* plain arrays; but the server currently

2) CSV value which is then parsed on the server

Is there any reason at all to do CSV parsing on the server, for the
CLI/XMLRPC case? I can't see it.

Because we want people to be able to write their own client and need to
be able to handle whatever they send.


Handle whatever they send? That sounds like we should try to read their minds. I think we should only allow well-structured XMLRPC calls. The format already has a syntax for lists, why force clients to *also* support CSV (e.g. escape commas)? It's a burden for both sides.
