PB is fine.  AMP or Foolscap might be better for some tasks, but PB is
mature and works.

PB features integration with Cred, which is Twisted's pluggable
authentication mechanism.


Cred is very flexible.  The integration between PB and Cred isn't quite
as flexible, but it works fine for straightforward cases.

If you're looking for larger sample code, I have a game that uses PyGTK
and PB and Cred, here:
