Question on using WebService API through SOAP WSDL

For what it's worth, every time I use a WSDL the stubs have some strange
and mysterious incompatibility.

Unless I'm using the same producer as I am consumer for a WSDL, I
typically avoid them. This comes from using .Net with Xfire with
SOAP::Lite. Just painful.

XML-RPC I've had good success with.

Just my perspective (and a minor sigh of "thanks" to the folks who chose
XML-RPC as the API backbone). :)
