I use the ZServer component of Zope with XML-RPC without using all of Zope.
ZServer is built on Medusa, so it would appear the good folks at Digital
Creations have already done the legwork you require.

SOAP implementations aren't as mature as XML-RPC yet. I stopped looking
fairly early on because all the stuff I saw floating around required
Internet Explorer or Perl. Fredrik Lundh is/was working on a Python
interface to SOAP, but I don't know the status.
