Hello python programmers! I would like to add myself to the ever 
increasing number of python users. Here's my first question. I've 
written two SOAP clients using PERL and a PHP. I tried to wirte a new 
SOAP client using python but I'm having problems. First, I can't seem to 
find a good documentation of the SOAPpy module. Second, I found a code 
snippet of a python SOAP client but it was designed only to use the 
SOAPproxy function. How can I create a python SOAP client given these 

HOST: https://hostname/cgi-bin/server.cgi

Here's the PERL snippet that I'm trying to convert into a pythinic language:

my $login = SOAP::Lite
    -> uri ($URL)
    -> proxy ($host)
    -> login($uname, $epwd);
my $result = $login

Help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance and more power to 
python programmers!
