      Hi, Kent!

      Probably the easiest (niciest? ;)) way to do that is to override
      on_dispatch method for SOAP::Server, check authInfo and decide what
      to do.

      my $daemon = SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Daemon
      -> new (LocalPort => 80)
      -> on_dispatch(sub {
      my $env = shift;
      die "no auth info\n" unless ref $env->valueof('//authinfo');
      die "wrong auth info\n" unless .... # check for auth info here
      return; # if everything is ok and we want to use default dispatch
      # -- OR -- dispatch to specific class/method
      return 'http://company.com/My/Class', 'method'; # URI, method
      -> dispatch_to('add')
      print "Contact to SOAP server at ", $daemon->url, "\n";

      All other processing (check for dispatch_with and dispatch_to) will
      still be done. on_dispatch method allows you to specify URI and
      method dynamically, instead of those that specified in envelope. Hope
      it helps. Let me know if you have any problems with that.

      Best wishes, Paul.
