Thanks for the example to use in the upcoming SOAP documentation:

  Integrated client tag
    You can make SOAP RPC calls to other servers. That includes other
    catalogs on the same Interchange server, of course!

	my $next_order = q{[soap
	if(! $next_order) {
	    # Alternatively you could die if this was in an order profile
	    Log("Failed to get order number from SOAP! Using temporary number");
	    $next_order = q{[counter file=emergency.number]};
	$Session->{mv_order_number} = $next_order;
