Just catching up on some old email I intended to respond to ...

I like this, though it appears to be written assuming that each web
service exposes a custom rather than generic interface.  That's ok
though; either way, this makes sense.  It's just a lot more tractable a
solution in the generic interface case, IMO, since you only have to do
it once for all services.
