I'm trying to transmit UTF-8 strings in complex data structures with SOAP::Lite. However, as it turns out, SOAP::Lite quietly converts all UTF-8 strings into base-64-encoded octets
. The problem with that is that the deserializing does not revert the conversion
and only does a straight base64 decode
This leaves me confused as to how a user is supposed to ensure that they get UTF-8 data from the SOAP::Lite response. Walking the tree and running `decode_utf8` on all strings seems wasteful.
Edit: In a nutshell, how do i make this test
pass without monkey-patching?
