Twisted AMP meets all your requirements except C support, which you
could probably add.  (Or maybe avoid adding by using some other way
to bridge C computing code with Python network code, like ctypes.)

Also take a look at Google's Protocol Buffers, which lacks C support but
has C++ support.  A Twisted version called txprotobuf was recently
announced.  (Note that Protocol Buffers isn't really a full RPC system,
just the serialization part.)

I think combining these two might work nicely, though I haven't tried it
