i'm thinking of a way to automatically export a function
a la xml-rpc. Rici pointed me to some very interesting
yet still way-over-my-head-can-comprehend spots.
looks like there's no straightforward way to do this.
will still have to experiment a bit and see what's
comfortable if ever i get the unkown barriers out of the way.
