The casting to and from the appropriate object structures is, afaik, the
only additional step. Lovely, huh? Simple Protocol for Accessing
Reason number 1 why people use PVM or MPI for real distributed computing
rather than SOAP.
My own (minimally worked on) client code is the other way round because
once I get back the response I put it into a SOAP wrapper and give it to
the SOAP engine to process into objects for me. =)
I'll try a similar experiment to Ralph, though.
