I'm doing it in Java right now.  I'm trying to integrate the JabberBeans
library and the Apache SOAP implementation.  Before anyone else says it,
I know there may be licensing issues lurking, but I'm being forced this
way because Apache's got the best functional implementation of XML:DB,
my eventual target for data storage.

If it gets to be more than an ugly hack, I'll be happy to share.
