Wow, this is the best CPAN has to offer? Docs are poor. As a perl user of ten plus years it nearly numbed my mind to figure out how to make a basic call to an external SOAP API with some raw xml. This was painful to say the least. So painful I resorted to a simple LWP script for said need. No, my LWP script doesn't have the fancy OO interface, but it does work and in record time compared to trying to dig through the docs for this module.
