You made me look out of curiosity.  Its nice that it can be "tricked"
but it does seem silly to have binded it to the POST data.  SOAP's
primary transport may be HTTP, but it is intended to be agnostic of
transport.  HTTP, SMTP, message queues, sneaker, fax, pigeon, etc are
valid SOAP transports.  Too bad the extension is specific to HTTP POST.

Just my $0.02, FWIW.
