[XML-SIG] the state of WSDL implementation

Try ZSI. I just used wsdl2py to generate bindings, and everything  
went ok. I haven't tried the code out yet, nor am I going to have  
time to in the near future. I used the latest cvs version of the  
"serialize-dom-scheme" branch of ZSI. If you have trouble trying  
this, or it doesn't work, please email the pywebservices mailing list  
( pywebsvcs-talk at lists.sourceforge.net).
