I don't know anything about BEA or Jrockit but I do *LOTS* of XML-RPC
calls with Cook Computing's XML-RPC.NET in Mono and I've never noticed
any kind of performance issue.  Of course there is overhead with GC, but
I don't really think it is avoidable;  either the VM is doing GC or you
are.  I think the only way to know for your app is to test;  for me,
even testing on a weenie 1.4GHz Celery laptop I frequently see
call-to-callback times of less than 100ms for small payloads.
