I've created a pull request to review the change:

There is a factory class that abstracted away some of the differences between PHP SOAP extension and Nusoap.  I left this in place for now, since it will require changes all over the place.  I'm thinking we do a first checkin to remove the nusoap dependency, then we can follow up with another as needed to remove this class.

No, I think we should drop it for 1.3 . Roland has mentioned that the
minimal required PHP version is safe to use with the SOAP extension.

I also think the bugs due to the conversion have been fixed in 1.2.x. already.
