in reply to Using Perl's SOAP::Lite to talk to Python
Think of your methods on the service (server) side as services or helpers for a remote client object.
So with this in mind have your Python friend create a class on his client side that uses your services/methods to help his class fulfil its needs.
The idea of Object/Class Services is a powerful one. and takes a little getting use too but as a guy who has spent the last 3 months in Java Enterprise Bean hell I really have come to appreciate the simplicity of SOAP and the idea of services vs full blown distribute objects.
Hope this helps.
BTW, on a technical note the reason your code did not work as expected is you tried to pass what in reality was a reference to an object which SOAP just can't do.
