easily added to AxisFault, along with headers. Can put this stuff in 
when an exception comes in; right now it is dropped on the floor.

There is some fun here in that we have different faults for SOAP1.1 and 
SOAP1.2. So while I could ask for a fault, I have to decide whether it 
is 1.1 or 1.2. hmm.

public interface SoapFaultSource {

      * The full SOAPFault to send back. This will become the body of a 
      * @return the SOAPFault to return as the body of a message.
     SOAPFault getSOAPFault();

      * Get any Headers to include in the message.
      * @return an iterator over headers, or null for no headers of 
     Iterator getHeaders();
