redisrpc 0.3.3

RedisRPC is the easiest to use RPC library in the world. (No small claim!) It has implementations in Ruby, PHP, and Python. Redis is a powerful in-memory data structure server that is useful for building fast distributed systems. Redis implements message queue functionality with its use of list data structures and the `LPOP`, `BLPOP`, and `RPUSH` commands. RedisRPC implements a lightweight RPC mechanism using Redis message queues to temporarily hold RPC request and response messages. These messages are encoded as JSON strings for portability. Many other RPC mechanisms are either programming language specific (e.g. JavaRMI or require boiler-plate code for explicit typing (e.g. Thrift). RedisRPC was designed to be extremely easy to use by eliminating boiler-plate code while also being programming language neutral. High performance was not an initial goal of RedisRPC and other RPC libraries are likely to have better performance. Instead, RedisRPC has better programmer performance; it lets you get something working immediately.
