Exactly as designed. Since the SOAP module allows direct subroutine
calls to the Interchange core, we don't want to allow them unless
they are specifically enabled.

If you want a promiscuous server then you need to put in interchange.cfg:

	SOAP_Control Tag  always

If you wanted to prevent only a few tags you would do:

	SOAP_Control Tag 	    always
	SOAP_Control Tag/writefile  never
	SOAP_Control Tag/dangerous  never
