      One suggestion is to patch the outgoing envelope to insert the xsi:type.
      This could be done by inheriting from the 'envelope' method and
      inserting at the appropriate place. See Alberto's serializer for an
      example of inheriting from 'envelope'. There may be other ways to patch
      the outgoing envelope.

      Subject: Re: SOAP::Lite hash references

      Thanks for the response. The only problem is that in this situation,
      complex types cannot be built on the server side using the SOAP::Data
      constructor. Instead the function on the server only returns (and must
      return) a hash reference. Somehow I need SOAP::Lite to be able to give
      this a xsi:type when it serializes it. Is this possible?
