That's pretty neat. I must admit I've only used kdcop for my tests, so far.

Ah. Then I understand why I've got problem with this :)

Here's what I'm doing:
- Subclass DCOPObject
- Redefine interfaces() and functions(). Making them return a (python) list of 
(python) string instead of a QCStringList works out of the box.
- Redefine process(). It's this one that's painful because I have to do the 
[de]marshalling of data and replyData by hand. 

Are there any functions that could help me doing this, in current version ?

Thanks for your help,
