As a matter of interest[*], is anyone seeing any sign of "improvements"
here? Is anyone using WCF to auto-generate, auto-deploy, auto-*anything*
Web-Service-y? That's actually *useful*, that is?

In particular, I'm wondering about those of you working for larger
companies where I'd guess this is more likely to happen. My gut feeling
is 'no', but that may just be the crispy beef noodles from lunch messing
with me.

[*] for varying values of 'interest' of course
