This is only useful if you need to plug-in new actions, either by 3rd
parties or as a configuration measure. If the actions are fixed, an
easier way to do it is command dispatch to appropriately named methods,
like the way XML-RPC dispatches a "foobar" command to the method
xmlrpc_foobar, or to appropriate command-handling objects.
