Perhaps we could keep a STABLE version with 'small' incremental extensions and
do a backward compatible rewrite in parallel? What I do not like very much is
the idea of extensions to the basic intent of the SOAP specification itself.
The stable version could be used for experimentation with WSTK like code (IMHO
minimally it would need small extensions for logging (filtering?) and remote
monitoring + your XML headers). The Next Generation could be the base for all
the other +++#  ideas. We would have then two source trees: the WST-Soap (mostly
stable)  and NGSoap (evolving)  in // ?
