This function returns the type of a PHP variable in XML-RPC terms. It won't "spot" base64 or iso8601 types unless they have been defined using xmlrpc_set_type().

For iso8601 type it returns "datetime".

Otherwise it returns strings corresponding directly the XML-RPC data types e.g. "struct","int","string","base64" etc.
