I agree that in principle its in the hands of the XMLRPC committers.
However, it would indeed be VERY nice IMO if the WS project were
to standardize on a build system, at least for new projects that
we start up. Having standardized infrastructure makes it easier
for developers to move across projects, for example.

I'm a +1 for Tetsuya's suggestion.
