I figured the first was the case, but I didn't know if there was some
way to support content negotiation appropriately, so that a SOAP request
on a given URL goes to one handler and an XML-RPC request on the same
URL goes to another handler.

(Someday I would like to play around more with conneg, so I think
this is cute, but the realistic side of me says it's a bad idea.)

Bingo!  It works now, and I'm one step further on my way to
Twisted Enlightenment.  Thanks Andrew!

BTW, I looked up twisted.web.resource on the doc page at


I don't see 'twisted.web.resource' in the 'Everything' section
in the lower left, which means it should be labeled 'Not Quite
Everything.'  ;)
