I'm not of one mind on this issue.  I will admit to a significant
temptation to rip this out.  But on the other hand, this is a sample that
we ship, and if it is unreliable or stops working, it behooves us to to
know this early.

This actually is the second XML service we have used.  There now are SOAP
servers out there which provide XML stock quotes.  We should be
interoperable with it might be nice to have a demo WebService
which invokes another web service...

Here's a simple one:

I made a number of improvements, previously it was looping over the same
file every 200 milliseconds...

Those changes have been checked in, but do not yet appear to be sufficient.
