That's because SOAP and company suck.  There is always, always, *always* a
better way to accomplish a task than using SOAP.  I've ranted about this
topic before in another thread, to no avail, and I doubt I'll change your
mind either, but someone needs to speak out against this nonsense.

Check out PyGridWare; they've integrated ZSI with twisted for you.  Again,
SOAP is a pure waste of time and effort, so please consider exploring the
other options available to you, before committing to SOAP.
