That explains why the code seemed to naturally fit.

I plan on.  I have been collecting example messages for the different  
rpc/encoded systems from blogs and docs, so we should be able to at  
least read most interpretations of SOAP encoded.  As for writing, I  
think we will be able to write in a format that most systems should  
be able to read, but for some really wacky systems, we may have to  
have a dialect flag on the port.

That's good to hear.  There are a few sections of code that left me  
scratching my head, so it's good to know that there is a good  
possibility it is a bug as opposed to an obscure undocumented feature :)
