[Soap-Python] rpclib/soaplib with WSDL parsing

The real reason I got rid of wsdlparse was because it did things the
java way -- it generated code. That's a fundamentally wrong approach
when you're working with Python because, by the virtue of being a
dynamic language, Python can parse wsdl and build required classes and
interfaces on the fly.
I also wanted to focus on making soaplib a proper soap server, because
that's what was lacking then in the Python world. (There even was a time
i'd entirely dumped client functionality in favor of suds.) Oh and
wsdlparse did not work most of the time anyway.
If suds wasn't already there, we'd probably have wsdl parsing in rpclib
here: http://github.com/arskom/qxsoap) But I did not think duplicating
suds' functionality in rpclib would benefit anybody, so I didn't do it.
I'd nevertheless encourage you to work on a wsdl parser for rpclib,
because i feel it'd have a greater benefit outside of the SOAP world --
I've stumbled upon a few people in the lxml mailing list who might be
interested working on an Xml Schema parser. They might want to give you
a hand if you ask around.
FWIW, I don't think you can easily adapt suds' wsdl parser to rpclib.
