Thanks, seems to have some good info too.

And with regards to SOAP, if I read correctly it used to be called 
XML-RPC (or RPC-XML - i can never remember which way the two terms go).

It's a system that sends XML back and forth using the HTTP protocol. So 
it's back to XML stuff. I don't know why, but I've never been a big fan 
of XML with ALFS. It's such a hassle maintaining XML profiles. But 
that's a discussion for another day (just because I don't like it 
doesn't mean it isn't the best thing all around and I'll just have to deal).
