[Twisted-Python] Twisted and SOAP

Well, at least I've found that the interest in SOAP in the Twisted
community is not very great ;) And understandably so. Unfortunately,
however, sometimes Twisted apps do need to talk to alternative
protocols, so it is a pity there's no recommended way of doing this.

For future reference: I ended up using suds with the following wrapper
provided to this list in April by Landreville. It seems to be working
great, so thanks Landreville :)

""" Wrapper for suds to create deferred instances. """
from suds.client import Client as SudsClient
from twisted.internet.threads import deferToThread

class Client(SudsClient):

   # method for returning a deferred for the RPC
   def callRemote(self, method, *args, **kwargs):
       def call(m, *a, **kw):
           result = self.service.__getattr__(m)(*a, **kw)
           return result
       d = deferToThread(call, method, *args, **kwargs)
       return d
