Large SOAP Attachments

One problem of webservices is sending large data chunks around - something you want to minimise. Not only for performance, but also because long transmissions may break. SOAP attachments are not ideal. One way to avoid sending data through SOAP is to send by reference, e.g. through the use of a URI (LSID) referral - which will delay fetching data until the last moment and may be optimised, e.g. through a bittorrent download (as discussed on Bio.share/Bio.slurp).
