I collaborated for some time with CherryPy (about two years ago), and wrote
some of the XMLRPC code back then. It makes sense, it's possible to
implement a complete API to edit/maintain the server configuration. CherryPy
it's very simple, and it's quite easy to put it to work with HTTPS (it now
supports WSGI, the new Python spec for Web applications; also, stunnel or
something similar can be used).
