I definitely think we'd end up duplicating a large part of Axiom.  The
real problem I have with Axiom is that it contains a bunch of stuff we
really don't need (the SOAP stuff).  Perhaps the better approach would
be to work with that group to figure out a more convenient packaging so
we don't have to ship the stuff we're not using.

Hmm.. that's definitely a possibility but it could get fairly
complicated depending on how its implemented.  I think we'd need to
figure out the larger server module strategy first.

All definite +1's

I would definitely like to see .NET and C++ implementations.  I just
have absolutely no time to devote to the actual code.
