Public XML-RPC functions.

All the following CipUX::Task methods are public. Public means that they could be executed remotely. Public means not that everybody can do this remotely.
There are two kinds of public functions:
(1) Functions without authorization
 - login
 - ping
 - sum
(2) Every other function is available only after using 'login' function, with a uid as first parameter and a valid ticket as second parameter.
Examples (pseudo code):
 - (reference to user list) = cipux_task_list_users( uid, ticket );
 - (true|false) = logout( uid, ticket );
 - (new ticket|false) = session( uid, ticket );
If the uid do not match, or the uid has not the authorization to use the function, or the group of the uid has not the authorization to use the function, or the ticket is expired, or the ticket is not valid the request will not be fulfilled.
In other words: if the uid match and has the right and the role also has the right and the ticket is valid and is not expired, the request will be executed.
To see real examples have a look at CipUX::RPC::Client client.
