Actually SOAP::Lite is the perfect control code for the CiP scale, 
I nominate SOAP::Lite for CiP level 3, i.e. CiP~~~


my $method = 'as_' . ($object->SOAP::Data::type || '-'); # dummy type if not defined
# try to call method specified for this type
my @values =  map {
    $self->can($method) && $self->$method($_, $object->SOAP::Data::name || gen_name, 
$object->SOAP::Data::type, $object->SOAP::Data::attr)


sure it makes sense, but it still is CiP and trust me this isn't
the only bit of CiP in here and much kudos to Paul for it ;-)
