You could hack xmlrpclib to marshall those object, but I dont recommend it. 
Those objects can be big (but lazily evaluated), and you would be opening a 
significant denial of service vulnerability in your server.

I suggest you create a method (Python Script?) that makes the catalog query, 
sanitizes the response by making sure it is not too big, and returns a 
vanilla list or dictionary
