I keep one telling this over and over, 
1. If we have a connection to the server, if we have all the LWP stuff
handled, the SOAP is just the content. I have experimented with
Frontier XMLRPC and soap, it can be used to encode the data between the
client and the server.
2. The existing pages that use html we have can converted to just spit
out the data in soap/xml-rpc then we just remove the html parser.
the entire application does not really change.
