Mostly the decisions have to do with scaling. For things that are accessed
frequently and don't change much we do stating renderings. Sometimes
dynamic. When we're creating interfaces we use XML-RPC, and in the last few
months as our SOAP implementation started to interop with others, we use
that. Dave
