      Another issue you may run into is that 'xmlrpclib' does not yet
      support HTTP basic authentication. This makes it difficult to
      call protected web resources. One solution is to patch
      'xmlrpclib'. Another solution is to accept authentication
      credentials in the signature of your published method.

         This is false. At least with the most recent version of Zope/CMF/Plone (Plone 1.5), basic authentication is
         supported and working. (I just tested it.)
