[xmlblaster] .NET xmlrpc code

Well since I cannot get the activex bridge to work, I played around with
XMLRPC, since it seems how many of the other clients, python, perl, tcl,
were implemented.

The first implementation of a .net xmlrpc library that I found was at:

At first, I thought this was the only, or official implementation...but
it looks like there are more.

Anyway, I downloaded the xmlrpc dll, and this code works...of course I
punked out on the .get because the CLS specification doesn't really
handle jagged arrays or arrays of differing types...however, I also know
it can be handled as an object in some way, because the IDE handles it
just fine, I can see all the values in the debugger.  

But, that reminds me, if anyone does play around with this, it doesn't
always connect in DEBUG mode, giving some kind of webservices error, but
it seems to be only an issue in DEBUG, working just fine in deploy mode.

Oh golly, I will have to learn programming lingo someday...anyway good
