An alternative approach is to pass the GSI credentials in the HTTP header or in
the SOAP envelope using e.g. WS-Security standards.  This would be an
alternative to modifying the individual data access methods.  However, we need
to remember that at least some of the methods will have only HTTP bindings (not
SOAP bindings) for use when transferring large data sets.  I'm not sure if
WS-Security would meet our needs in this context, but a modified HTTP header
might work for all scenarios.
