If you're interested, I've been plodding along on a comprehensive 
SOAP / Web Services package:

http://dev.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/WebServicesForZope/

http://cvs.zope.org/Packages/WebService/

(Note that the python package is not Zope-specific in any way).

It's probably not quite ready for real-world use yet, but I thought 
I'd mention it in an effort to solicit feedback from Python folks 
interested in web services.

You should also look at ZSI (Zolera SOAP Infrastructure) at:
