Wishlist: on.

Consider using SOAP instead of just XML documents. Many languages have
very convinent and transparent support for SOAP (SOAP::Lite rocks in
Perl). I suspect that it will be much more easier to write clients
using SOAP interface compating to raw XML inteface.

Ofcource as RT author you should understand internals better than me
:) But at first look it seems to me that SOAP interface should be
easier to implement (again SOAP::Lite rocks :) ).
