As long as you use .net tools (like visual studio .net) you point the
IDE to a WSDL file and it generates all the glue code for you and you
can call it directly. That also works the other way around: you can add
decorators to class methods and it automatically becomes a
SOAP-accessible thing with a generated WSDL file (iirc it is generated
runtime using introspection).

As soon as you have to use SOAP from python you enter a world of pain. A
few years ago ZSI was basically unusable. Judging by the traffic on the
pywebsvcs list it is a lot better now, but a 2.0 release has been
pending for well over a year now.

Oh, I thought they released it already. But yes they only have release
candidates, and the times between different release candidates are still
high :-(
Yes, this pain thing we realised too.
