Thanks, I'll take a look.

The idea is that we have a Buffer which is basically a set of obejcts.
The Buffer sits on Machine A and Machine B says "hey, Machine A, can I
get an Object?", Machine A dutifully passes an Object to Machine B and
removes it from its Buffer. The object should then only exist on
Machine B, which can later put it back on the Buffer if necessary.

What I really need is an Event::RPC which uses Data::Serializer to
pass around objects. The question is do I get that by using Event::RPC
and making my obejcts serialize themselves, by using RPC::Serialized
but making it keep state, or in some other way entirely.
