Description of problem:
python 2.6's xmlrpc implementation does not make use of HTTP/1.1's keepalive: it forces client and server to renegotiate a connection for every function call. This is particularly expensive when working over HTTPS.
A solution for this has been submitted to python 2.7, see http://bugs.python.org/issue6267 . Would you backport it to RHEL6?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Looks like r73638 is the trunk fix, but it introduced regressions and we'd also need r73821 and r73822, at least.
