I have used XMLRPC in the past (until recently it was my main use of
Twisted), but it does not support complex objects, nor callbacks.  PB
does both, but just in an async manner.

I could use CORBA instead of PB, but then I'm likely to be in the
position where I want to learn Twisted and CORBA - I'd rather just
learn Twisted, as long as I can get it to play with Windows COM in the
way that I want.
