 Well, for a start the wrappers aren't very polished :-)
 Don't be so sure that it's "not to hard to set up". The routine I had to go 
through was ask FedEx for a test account, then ask them for "scenarios" to 
test it with, then print out sample shipping labels based on their scenarios 
and mail them to FedEx, then wait for them to get 'em and approve you for 
access to their production server. 

 I didn't finish the tags to the point where they could work for all of the 
test scenarios. The customer I developed them for only needed a small subset 
of all the different shipping configurations you can do. No need for shipping 
hazardous materials, customs declarations, heavy packages or things like 
that. It holds up well for domestic shipping, but International shipping 
requirements are much more complex and only partially supported by my code.
