We reuse sr sip parser for parsing the xmlrpc http requests and then we
need only to parse the xml, so sr itself acts as an xml server. This has
the advantage that a special route can be used for handling xml messages
and one can decide whether or not to accept such a message having all
normal config tests at his disposal (e.g. one can allow xmlrpc only on
tls and only if some certificate matches or one can forward xmlrpcs to
all members of a cluster a.s.o).

However all this is integrated with the "rpc" interface, so it can be
used only if you write ser style rpcs instead of the mi functions, or if
you write a different xmlrpc mi transport (but since mi future is
uncertain I wouldn't do that).
