Before deciding on XML-RPC we need to decide if documention will be
pulled from servers or pushed to individual Drupal installations.

I expect for the best security and reliability it must be pull. This
means we are just grabbing public information off a server. No need for
something as complex as XML-RPC. Just throw it in XML so there is an
adequate place to keep any metadata. It could even use RSS, although I
think we should avoid using RSS for things which don't need it.
