Description Justin Ross 2010-04-27 13:57:33 UTC
Right now, the lowest-level method call interface on qmf.console.Session (_sendMethodRequest) requires a number of high-level objects that many console users don't have around and will need to synthesize.  This is done needlessly, because the _sendMethodRequest then unpacks those objects to get at their data.

I propose there be an alternate interface that takes data, not objects.
