Well, most transports have a status/error code for responses and if you
came back through the normal chain (i.e. not via an AxisFault) it's
probably a reasonably safe assumption that you have some sort of

In any event, ignoring the previous section, the code that executes the
InFlow lives in OutInAxisOperation.send(...), and that already looks at
the SOAPEnvelope.  It just always executes the InFlow without first
looking to see if there was a fault.
