This was sent last night, before my "contraints" post this morning.  Don't
know why it took 10 hours to show up!  Anyway, in light of my list of 5
constraints on what a "web service" is, it's a bit hard to justify calling
5) above a "Web service", but somehow it "smells" like a Web service to me.
I would much appreciate other thoughts on this ...
