Have you seen my recent XML::Compile module?  It produces a perfect
compliant XML data message, as long as you have a name-space Schema.
In the perl program just nested HASHes.  It does understand any,
lists, and substitutionGroups, and very thing else.

XML::Compile::WSDL and ::SOAP are under way, as alternative to
SOAP::Lite.  Presentation at the upcoming YAPC::EU.
