Absolutely... we'd need to sift thru the adaptor source and piece together
something that emulates it.  My version was purely to sniff traffic to see
what was going between Apache and the WO apps.

You got it.

I am quite serious about getting it to work.  WO 4.5 is a different beast
from 4.0, though, with the introduction of wotaskd.  Still, it's all
XML-based so maybe we can leverage a lot of what's out there to get it up
and running.  Man, it'd be great to have a mod_perl adaptor.  Minimise the
number of postings to the WO mailing list about getting the stupid adaptor
to work, at any rate. :-)
