Guess what... Narval uses it for its UI/engine communication :-)

We use www.pythonware.com's implementation.

SOAP is slow... because parsing XML messages is slow and using a generic
format for marshalling objects is verbose (ie much slower than Corba and
its stub mechanism). But it works and looks like a good open-standard
