Actually, I'd expect large files over XML-RPC to be handled by sending
a URL, and have the client GET the file separately.  But then, I have
weird ideas sometimes.

Unless you can make the server a simple front-end to a pile-o-files on
disk, I don't see any benefit.  There's no issue for the client, only
the server, since they want to limit the number of machines they stick
behind the load-balancer.

Ok, I think we've agreed this isn't an Expat issue, but a bug in
RedHat code that's unrelated to using XML in Zope.  The Expat-based
minidom-builder in recent versions of Python is pretty well tested in
