Does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations on what we can go with?
preferrably something network-aware, such as the Perl fe/be is now, we
could have the backend running on another box, while the frontend is on
another, etc...

I've been looking at XML-RPC, http://www.xmlrpc.com/, again.

There's a list of different language implementations,
http://www.xmlrpc.com/directory/1568/implementations  so i think it
could cover all the languages you guys (may) want to code in.

XML-RPC is a way to make remote procedure calls (in XML) over HTTP (and
even HTTPS), much like SOAP is, actually SOAP is based on XML-RPC,
except it has a bunch of more "features" added to it.

Anyways, these are just some quick thoughs, lets get this ball of wax
(uhhh, right) up and running...
