That should work if you've got SOAP::Lite on both sides.
Note that if you are trying to interop with Apache SOAP, you may have to
write a custom deserializer on the Apache SOAP side (or possibly hack the
source, as we did). For some reason Apache SOAP interprets both "1" and "0"
as false; it requires a "true" or "false" string in the SOAP message to
interpret it correctly. SOAP::Lite refuses to encode the strings by default,
it puts the integers instead.
You could also do this with a perl SOAP::Lite serializer but I'm not sure if
it would interop with other implementations. SOAP::Lite seems to interpret
1/0 "true"/"false" interchangeably however, if I remember correctly.

Something like this should work (untested!):
return SOAP::Data->type(boolean => $value ? 1 : 0);
