Good question. From my experience, a finely tuned parser for
XML messages like SOAP messages, or S-expressions can be
very fast, and parsing isn't the overhead. The bandwidth
side is very much a problem, and there isn't too much
you can do about it.
Of course, the greater the number of hops, the worse it
gets, especially when you have lot's of packet loss.
