If there's a ton of configuration then we could always configure this
stuff using the normal CXF way in spring.xml - then just refer to it
by name (spring id/name) from Camel.

OK. Lets start with the easy stuff and gradually get more complex.

So how about for now we assume CXF client or servers are configured in
spring outside of camel; then we try write a camel
endpoint/producer/consumer so we can consume camel messages and send
them to the CXF service, or we can get a CXF client to send to a camel

(We can worry about things like POJO v Payload v Message mode later on)
