any change you can provide me with an URL that returns a XML structure
for testing?

i've tried registering a new login but got the following after
clicking the confirmation email link.:

IntegrityError: (IntegrityError) column diver_confirmation_key is not
unique u'UPDATE divers SET diver_confirmation_key=? WHERE divers.diver
= ? AND divers.diver_creation_date = ?' ('ok',
u'41TFEC8ZMVD5DBE0JPBBU5JDDA2Y6T', '2013-01-17')

on the "libcurl vs libsoup" topic, on Windows at least, i'm having
major issues finding the appropriate packages to make the newest
libcurl work. building is usually a bit of a PITA, so i haven't tried
that yet. while with libsoup, i already have a working example using
2.4.0 (which is a bit outdated itself) , where i can make a GET
request and receive the response body.

i propose that i send a patch using libsoup and the webservice
backend, which can be changed eventually.

does webservice.[c/h] sound good?
