The way I see it, ya got 3 options:

Thanks for submitting the patch.  It looks interesting, and I think we 
could use it.  Please put together a test case and polish points a and b 
a little and we'll roll it in.

Thanks for submitting the patch.  I couldn't get it to work OR I don't

Which may explain some of my dissatisfaction with my perceived lack of 
progress with apache's xmlrpc.  I have not looked at the code yet, just 
some javadoc, and I'm all excited about it.  The thing that immediately 
caught my eye was the ability to add handlers for encoding other class
