[XML-SIG] the state of WSDL implementation

There's a nice project at the Leipzig University
http://wortschatz.uni-leipzig.de providing several web services
(SOAP) for linguistic use: co-occurrences of words, base forms, left
and right neighbours, and so forth.
To give you an example of a web service, here's a WSDL describing the
According to the people in Leipzig, Java and .NET clients are doing
fine with this (acutally, the server software is part of the Java
Axis project), but they say Perl and Python can't handle the complex
WSDL descriptions. And indeed, SOAPpy fails to come up with a valid
SOAP envelope for this service.
I'm wondering if there are similar experiences with Python SOAP
clients in other areas.
I want to use *just this* service, so I could probably (as a
workaround) use a pre-built envelope as a template and just fill in
the word of which I need the base form. But this is obviously not the
way web services are meant to work.
Are there any ideas or comments? Perhaps there are independent
implementations of SOAP besides pybwebsvcs?
any input is highly welcome!
