As it seemed to be a little complicated to get this running, I'm  
wondering if
you can't use grok.JSON?

class NoteJSON(grok.JSON):

     def edit(title='', text=''):
         self.context.title = title
         self.context.text = text

This is what edit could look like. I'm not sure of the difference  
between this and
jsonrpc from your application's perspective.
