I use HaXR in conjunction with Snap. It basically boils down to using
Network.XmlRpc.Server (handleCall, methods) in conjunction with Snap's
getRequestBody and writeLBS.

The good news is you don't need to worry about forking your own
threads, the web server handles that. To make calls stateful, you just
stash away a reference in the handler you give Snap (or whatever web
server you use).
