I did something similar to what you describe back when SOAP 0.9 was
current.  Basically, you probably want code to read HTTP headers and
then the HTTP body.  You take the body and parse into an XML DOM, then
traverse the DOM to pick out the important parts of the SOAP call, then
write HTTP headers and XML body for the response.  This is the core of
handling SOAP requests.  Probably well more than 50% of the Apache SOAP
source is devoted to attaching more advanced features onto this and/or
supporting as many features of SOAP 1.1 as possible.
