I think it's a mistake to lump together XML-RPC and SOAP. These are *not* the
same things, really; the leveraged use of namespaces and all the other
extraneous crap in SOAP makes it much less amenable to casual use. (No offense
to Dave intended; I think it's a sad testament to the corrupting influence of
Microsoft to guage the "complexity creep" between the beautiful simplicity of the
early XML-RPC documents and today's SOAP documents.)
