Do you mean subclassing SOAPpy and changing the places where it uses
urllib to talk to the server? (This might be totally off target -- I've
been browsing the code in SOAPpy and I'm getting confused ...)

I don't think SOAP needs cookies for anything. My problem is that the SOAP
server for upload is only available if I have a certain cookie that I
can send to the web server in the http header, i.e. the web server won't
let me through to the SOAP server unless I can supply the cookie first.

If you have the time, that would be much appreciated!
