adding the functionality to be able to POST the WCS requests to a
configurable URL is a valuable functionality anyway as it might be used
with any WCS server.
However, we might want find a more clever solution for the integration
of the SOAP Proxy and EOxServer to promote performance optimization. I'm
thinking of a solution where the requests and results are directly
passed in the memory. Stephan K. once mentioned a maybe possible
solution but I can't recall it right now.
Anyway, I think I'm trying to say I agree to proceed with the URL
solution but eventually we might find a better solution for our special
