I have discovered after much digging that the following works rather
my $server = new SOAP::Server;
my $response = $server->handle( $xml );
Just got to figure out how to format the headers correctly in my
response and it should work nicely.
Shame this isnt documented. The above approach means I can now run
the SOAP Handler in my existing multiprocess preforking server and
away from apache.
