I whould be very happy if we could implement the XML-RPC
package as a independent server addon. I think not everyone uses
XML-RPC and likes to have such a server option built-in.

What do you think can you move it to a top level package
if you refactor this part.

I implemented z3c.json and z3c.jsonprc. This package
uses a own JSON-RPC skin type. I was choosing this additional
layer implementation because I like to separate the registered
methods to such requests. And we do not have the BrowserRequest
at this servers at all. 

We also started to implement some core server applications 
with only JSON-RPC APIs.  There is no browser/page based UI
at all installed. All is managed by JSON from another Zope
server via remote (JSON-RPC) access. 

If anybody likes to implement a XML-RPC API without any
browser view for a server, I think it should be possible too.

Whould be great if you could take a look at z3c.jsonrpc
and tell me if there is somethig to improve.
