Hi Tad,
I tried myself, but had to stop at the very beginning. These three lines 
of code are sufficient to give me problems:

require 'soap/wsdlDriver'
WSDL_URL = "https://api.betfair.com/betex-api-public-ws/BFService.wsdl"
soap = SOAP::WSDLDriverFactory.new(WSDL_URL).createDriver

I get the following:

warning: peer certificate won't be verified in this SSL session.
Unknown attr {}abstract.
Unknown attr {}nillable.
Unknown attr {}nillable.
Unknown attr {}nillable.
Unknown attr {}abstract.
Unknown attr {}nillable.
Unknown attr {}nillable.
(...)

I am running Ruby 1.8.2 on MacOS 10.4.7 . In general my feeling is that 
the SOAP4R library is very immature.
