[REBOL] Re: Google + SOAP

I think your parameter block example nicely demonstrates again REBOL's
powerful expression ability. The question I think then is - how does
I'm a "babe in the woods" in my understanding of web services and the
XML namespace obligations, but I suspect that do-google-search should
be manufactured by some smart REBOL factory function that takes the
WSDL specification as input. Maybe someone else can comment on
the feasability of this.
On a different tangent I can envisage two REBOL web service client
scenarios: (1) user-agent (2) IOS server on behalf of IOS users:
(1) The user-client would best use something like do-google-search.
That is do-google-search is a proxy/stub for the web service.
(2) The IOS server-client (ios<--->non-ios) might want to make
asynchronous calls to a web service before returning/sending results to
an IOS client in a situation where possibly many webservice calls are
made on behalf of IOS users - a message router model (I think).
Perhaps REBOL schemes can also be useful here?
