That thing where the release notes

That thing where the release notes should have had a big "THE SOAP API IS GOING TO BREAK!", but didn't. And new documentation is silent.

It's a SOAP API, It's going to break.

My current strategy is to accept whatever they send, write it out as a file, analyze what they sent and try to figure out how to respond. As the other end typically can't handle a real-time error anyway, (record #2345 is not valid.. ) this seems to work pretty well. Having a file or DB record of EXACTLY what they sent has been a life saver.
