I think MS was under the impression (not sure if it's correct or not) that
RPC is much slower than window messages. I'm pretty sure this is true, but
it may not be if there are optimizations in RPC to handle non-cross process
calls using some faster form of in-process communication. It may just be
slower for initialization (CreateInstance) and finalization (Release()) of
proxies and thus objects.
