This is great work, it looks like it will be perfect for a project at work. Do you have an example of how it should be used in conjunction with suds? It looks like the open and send methods are expecting a 'request' object, so are you to use suds to create the requests object then send it to the methods of RequestsTransport subclass?

I tried this gist with a suds 0.4 and it failed.

I tried lots of SUDS versions and forks, and finally got to find one that works with proxies, https and authenticated services, find it here:
