DBfetch has a SOAP-based interface:

http://www.ebi.ac.uk/Tools/webservices/services/dbfetch

Just not sure how easy it would be to switch XEMBL code over to using  
it.  We already have Bio::DB::DBFetch so it may be redundant, but I  
don't recall any other SOAP-based tools in BioPerl beyond some stuff  
in bioperl-run (and I'm not sure how up-to-date the DBFetch module is).
