One in particular is that soap-client wasn't handling xsi:type overrides
like this:

    <found xsi:type="apachens:Map">
        <key xsi:type="xsd:string">24.3.50</key>
        <value xsi:nil="true" />

I had to update our soap-client test case to expect the string "24.3.50"
instead of the symbol 24.3, in this case, now that the override is

If you can provide the hacked and unhacked Debbugs.wsdl I can try them
out in the test suite.  We'll also need to retest "live" debbugs-gnu
carefully as part of the merge to check for regressions.
