Yes, and no. Yes: A simple SSH tunnel from the XML-RPC would do. Indeed,
that's what I'd recommend, if possible. No: XML-RPC is basically a single
HTTP request. For NAT traversal, I think it would be possible to map the
single HTTP request into two HTTP requests, which the XML-RPC "server" would
send to the client. The first HTTP request would ask for the XML-RPC
request, the second HTTP request would send the response.

In Version 3 of Apache XML-RPC the transport is clearly separated from the
request/response handling. Indeed, it should be relatively easy to achieve
the above scenario.
