Excerpts from Tomeu Vizoso's message of Wed Sep 08 11:00:13 +0200 2010:

I originally meant to say that as well, but double-checked the original
code and discovered that xmlrpclib (a stock Python module) uses the same
API internally. There's a good chance that switching to the newer classes
would require reimplementing large parts of xmlrpclib.
