Unless your favorite language's soap bindings are horrid, SOAP should
be fairly simple and trivial. None of the examples in
http://wiki.debian.org/DebbugsSoapInterface are "very complex", which
covers 3 of the reasonably popular languages.
I mean, in perl, it's as simple as:
perl -MSOAP::Lite -MData::Dumper \
-e 'print Dumper(

easy to make trivial frameworks to implement neat things in a language
