The current library needs some improvements.  The library could use:

* Support for adding an Transcript arrays to an XML-RPC request  
* Ability to create an XML-RPC request from a Transcript array.  If a  
rev developer could create an array that mimicked the request they  
wanted to make and just pass that to a function that sent the request  
off then life would be easier.
* The ability to convert a response into a Transcript array.

Ideally the library would allow the developer to interact with a web  
service without ever having to touch XML.  Just native Transcript  
data types.
