Python replacement for PHP's xmlrpc_encode_request [ edit | history ]
Help on function dumps in module xmlrpclib:

dumps(params, methodname=None, methodresponse=None, encoding=None, allow_none=0)
data -> marshalled data

Convert an argument tuple or a Fault instance to an XML-RPC
request (or response, if the methodresponse option is used).

In addition to the data object, the following options can be given
as keyword arguments:

methodname: the method name for a methodCall packet

methodresponse: true to create a methodResponse packet.
If this option is used with a tuple, the tuple must be
a singleton (i.e. it can contain only one element).

encoding: the packet encoding (default is UTF-8)

All 8-bit strings in the data structure are assumed to use the
packet encoding. Unicode strings are automatically converted,
where necessary.

import xmlrpclib

parameter = ( [1,2,3], {"1":2, "3":4} ) # a tuple
xml = xmlrpclib.dumps(parameter, 'some_method')
print xml


But for the love of your (future) girlfried/boyfriend just use the xmlrpclib interface. (Which does everything for you.)
