We are still on alpha 3 but we are syncing up over the next few weeks. We
are pretty tied up with some major items right now.

We are in discussion with Matt about syncing up. Currently we patch the
latest WSDL4J.

We'll tidy up the dependency so it builds cleanly.

There are a couple of uses of Apache SOAP. There are a few places where we
have been lazy and used SOAP classes in the base framework and we'll get rid
of those. And there's the ApacheSOAP provider, which is an alternative to
the Axis provider.

Yup. I need to introduce you to Jeremy, he's the team leader and build guru!

Yes! Once we're through our crisis, we'll post a new dist with samples and
the fixes. It would be nice to have the CVS tree sorted by then so we can do
the global rename at the same time and post it to its final destination.
