Fuzz, how would/does your async RPC work? Does the client, after sending the request, open an agreed upon port and listen in a separate thread for the return value or is it conceptually more like the server makes a second RPC call back to the client to return results?
If the latter semantics are sufficient for your purposes and you have multithreaded clients and servers, then I suspect XML-RPC could fairly easily (ignore all the hand-waving here... :-) be made to do what you want.
