The Python folks have discovered a flaw in SimpleXMLRPCServer that can
affect any XML-RPC servers.  This affects any programs have been written
that allow remote untrusted users to do unrestricted traversal and can
allow them to access or change function internals using the im_* and
func_* attributes.
