Part of PAOS's role in the WFS should be to keep track of the XML files being
transfered around (data ID's stored as objects?).  So when the transfer of
pickeled PAOS objects is made across the Net, the objects are unpickeled, and
the Internet AppBroker should get some indication as to where the XML is and how
to get it.

Can the XML's be attached to the pickeled PAOS objects when transferred?

No problem.
