I think that the licensing is compatible, so we have actually been considering 
including ZSI in 4Suite to provide the SOAP/RPC iomplementation for the 
repository.  If we did this (with Rich's permission, of course), it would help 
you a bit, but someone would still have to write the wrapper you mentioned.

I regret I'm unlikely to have the time to write it, but if you'd like to give 
it a start...
